Outlook 2003 calendar view problem

I have a user that is having a problem when they click on their calendar in Outlook 2003, non-exchange.  When the user click on their calendar, he get a view of his reocurring appointments as opposed to the actual calendar itself.  Under My Calendars, the proper calendar is highlighted.  The only way he can view his calendar is to click on the Calendar (backup) under My Calendars, which changes the My Calendars screen a little bit to where both Calendar and Calendar (backup) both have check boxes beside them.  The Calendar (backup) check box is checked at this point.  You can then click the Calendar check box, uncheck the Calendar (backup) check box and his calendar is displayed properly.  I have no idea what is causing this issue.  I also don't know what the deal is w/ the Calendar (backup).  Is that built into Outlook somehow???  

I have tried right clicking on the Calendar and selecting properties.  Under the Administration tab, the initial view on folder is Normal.  I've tried adjusting that w/o any luck.  I've also removed & readded his PST file as well as removing & readding his Outlook profile.  

Any ideas?

SupermanTB,

Your view settings is corrupt. You can run a command line to clear you view and return everything to default.  Use with care as all custom views you created will be lost.  Run command type:

Outlook /cleanviews

Occasionally you'll need to use the full path to Outlook, so the command line looks like:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office11\Outlook.exe " /cleanviews
