Problem with Outlook Forms error coming back

I have a user that keeps having this recurring issue.
When clicking on anything in Outlook 2007 sp2, the following error appears.
"Could not install the custom actions. The object could not be found."
I found numerous articles out on the web that say to delete the contents of the forms directory.  I do that and it fixes the problem.
It keeps coming back though.  I would like a permanent fix.
Here is the MS Article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2020427 
We don't use any Outlook custom forms.
We do have the RightFAX client installed on all pc's including this one.

from the ms link provided which gave another link http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;919596 it talks about intermittent problems with no known cause. It talks about using  ForceFormReload. Maybe try that?

As the the cause, I don't know. It talks about memory issues so perhaps RightFax has had issue? Don't know though.

* Possibly you might want to first clear the forms cache as below

On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Other tab.
Click Advanced Options.
In the Advanced Options box, click Custom Forms.
In the Custom Forms box, click Manage Forms.
In the Forms Manager box, click Clear Cache.

* If that doesnt fix, try recreating the outlook profile for this user.

Hope this helps,

I was unaware of the clear cache option so I tried that first.
I also deleted the Rightfax extensions in the forms manager but they keep coming back.
Not sure that's a big deal or not.  Will wait to see.

That ms article link posted talked about clearing the cache. There was a couple of things there, hopefully one of them does the trick for you.
