Old Reminders wont go away

Outlook 2003 SP3 and Exchange Server 2003 SP2

All users have a problem where old reminders, even though they have been deleted, keep coming up, daily, weekly or monthly however it was originally configured.  I did a outlook command line switch to clear reminders but it still happens.

Hi,
See PST files are created when you archive your mails.
See under Outlook --> File --> Archvie, you can move mails to a local file (.pst)
To open this file it is File -> Open -> Data File
What I am trying to say here is check if there are any PST files attached, or if you do not use any PST files, then search for them and delete/move to backup location(while Outlook is open)
And let me know what you get
Thanks

Well, if the event/appointment/task that has reminders set is in calender in PST and it is attached, it would still pop up

ok, after trying to open that archive file i discovered it does not exist.  When i look at the archive setting you mention its says to archive to x folder\archive.pst.  but that file does not exist.

I have recreated the profile, in fact i have un-installed office and re-installed office (which i also asked a question on here, which was never resolved, since there seems to be no way to fully uninstall office).  I have even given one user a new computer, built from scratch with no image and it still happens.  It happens to me also and i will recreate my profile shortly but there is no way to speed up the notifications, since the next old notification is the weekly tues meeting that keeps showing up.
