Cannot add a task in Office Outlook 2003

This is the full error message that i get. in Outlook 2003

Please save the tak order by clicking save task order on the Actions menu in the "Tasks" folder. The view must not be filtered or grouped for Save Task Order to be available. could not complete the operation. One or more parameter values are not valid.

I have searched on EE and foud some different solutions. None of them worked.
outlook /cleanfreebusy
outlook /cleanreminders
I have tried Save Task Order which also did not work.
I have tried all of those. I also found the microsoft article where it said to run exchang32.exe. I can not find this? is there a place to download this exe? do i really need it? I have tried searching on our exchange server for this exe and cannot find it either?

I have not tried creating the persons profile from scratch by using the mail and prompt for a profile to be used. Would this help? or would that just recreate the problem since his mailbox is on the exchange server?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks for your time.

I also attached the error that i recevie. This person also has some archived tasks. would that also cause a problem?

I found a KB article on Microsoft's site the indicates that this can be caused by damage in the Task folder itself  (  Their suggestion is to create a new Task folder.

Wow, do i feel pretty dumb right now! I guess i just over analyzed the problem. The solution worked. I should have emailed this question in this morning. It would have saved me the headache from trying to find the solution myself. Thanks for your time.
