Outlook 2007: Stop prompts for internet shared calendar login

Outlook 2007 has an internet shared calendar feature. Users are being prompted to log in, even though they have never shared their calendars.

"Please enter your username and password for publishing calendars to calendars.office.microsoft.com."

In tools|accounts, we can delete the item on the internet calendars menu - but it reappears after outlook is reloaded.  Apparently you used to be able to go online and change your subscription, and now it is done through the client by right clicking on the Calendar and going to publish to internet.  But the remove from server item is greyed out.  (They have never shared it to begin with)

At this point the feature has become more trouble than it is worth. What I would like is to find some way to disable the feature entirely on a case by case basis.  I don't see it in the options, or under the add-ins.

I suspect, but have not verified, that another user with a shared calendar has logged in to the machine under an administrator account (me). Somehow the internet calendar feature is active under the regular user's profile, but has not been configured with a web login.  (Or perhaps the login credentials are blown away when the internet items are cleared periodically.)

Any quick way to disable this annoying thing? Or even fix the problem?
