Cannot turn off a reminder in Outlook

Hi

We are running Outlook 2007 with Exchange 2003.

A user keeps getting this message:

"Cannot turn off reminder. You maybe reminded again. Out of memory of system resources. Close some programs and try again"

We have run /cleanreminders and also tried logging onto his Outlook on a different machine, still get the error.

Any idea?

Try turning off Cache Mode, then run the /cleanreminders switch again.

Come to think of it .... I have run into this issue before with an Anti-Virus add-in malfunctioning.  I had to uninstall the anti-virus and then use the /cleanreminders switch a couple times before the reminder was correctly repaired.  Then I was able to reinstall my AV.

Since you are getting "Out of memory of system resources" there seems to be memory leak from a program.
