Outlook reminders appear after being dismissed

Other than reinstalling Outlook 2000 on my system, how can I prevent the reminders from appearing after they have been dismissed.  I know there is a known bug on Outlook 2000 concerning this condition on Microsoft's site.  Is there anyway around it.

Have you tried running outlook.exe from a run prompt using the following switch.

outlook.exe /cleanreminders

I'll try it tomorrow, but that appears as a possible solution all over net that failed for users.

Yes it fails more often than it works but sometimes it does work, it's worth a try.

No luck, it failed no matter how I put it in, with a space, without a space, etc.

restarting several times and running scandisk twice did the trick.
