Outlook calendar reminders are not dismissed when I change them to a future date and/or time

Often when a reminder pops up for an Outlook calendar item, I double-click the reminder to open the calendar item and I change the reminder to a date in the future. In the past this would cause the reminder to be removed from the Reminders pop-up window, but recently this has stopped working. I have to click the Dismiss button to remove the reminder from the Reminders pop-up after changing the reminder date.

Does anyone know how to fix this so it works correctly?

Have you tried to snooze it to remind you in the future (5 minutes to 2 weeks)?

Yes, snoozing works but I only use that when I want to postpone something for later that day.

For the other appointments I want to change them to a specific date and time in the future when I will have time to do them. This was working and somehow stopped working.

What happened that caused this to stop working? Did you run any service packs, or other updates to your system?

If I knew what caused it I'd probably be able to fix it but I don't know. We have Automatic Update enabled on our machines so that they get the latest updates. Other than that I'm not sure what might have been installed.

Do you know of a fix for this issue?

Don,

I have tried to reproduce your issue here but it worked fine. I Have Office 2003 with SP3 + Windows XP with SP3. I really can't think about anything else.

So I would suggest you to remove MS Office completely, reboot the system, Download CCleaner http://www.ccleaner.com/download - it's freeware; Run the program, go to the registry and scan for issues; - you can also cleanup temp files, cookies, etc if you will; Whatever it finds it in your registry, you will click to Fix the selected issues, and click YES to save a backup of your registry.
Reboot it again; reinstall MS Office with all service packs and try again with your reminders.

I'm sorry I have not gotten back to you but I have been pretty busy. I'm afraid I don't have time to try the solution right now. Just putting up with the behavior is easier right now than trying the solution. But I am sure the solution would work so I am accepting it as the solution so you can be rewarded for your research.
Thanks,
Donander
