Cannot stop reminders

Ok....

Did a backup of a outlook 2000 pst via MS backup

Upgraded to MS2003,


Now when I paste(restore) it into the folder, all I get is a TON of reminders.....

I clicked dismiss all, but they still come back everytime I start outlook

I did a scanpst, see if that helped...nope

did the run /cleanreminders switch (may be off on the syntax, im tired)

nothing helps

ctmtnbkr,

1. Reset the Outlook toolbar template. With Outlook close, do a search for and rename outcmd.dat file. Restart Outlook and a fresh outcmd.dat file will be recreated.

2. Register an important Outlook file. Go to Start > Run and type regsvr32 OLE32.DLL

3. Disable Outlook Addins.  With Outlook close, do a search for and rename extend.dat file.

4. Start Outlook in Safe Mode.  Go to Start > Run and type

"c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Outlook.exe" /safe

Your path to Outlook.exe may be a little different.

5. Create a new Outlook profile.

6. Repair Outlook. With Outlook open, go to Help > Detect and Repair.

7. If no joy, reinstall Outlook.  Go to Add/Remove Programs and highlight Microsoft Office. Click on Install/Uninstall.  A menu will pop allowing you to choose repair or reinstall.

Greetings, ctmtnbkr !

1. When you restore the PST file, it is best to import the PST file, not copy to Application Data folder.

2. Clear your reminder cache.  Go to Start > Run and type

"c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Outlook.exe" /cleanreminders

and hit <Enter>.  Your path to Outlook.exe may be a little different.

3.  Make sure Outlook 2003 has the latest update, service pack 2.

Best wishes!
