"Ghost" tasks in Outlook 2007 after ScanPST run

HI all,

Last week, I did a remote session with a client who had a corrupt PST file that prevented Outlook from opening.  Now, he has noticed (and I have confirmed) that he has tasks showing up in the Task list that he had previously completed or deleted.  When I attempt to mark one complete, it says that the task cannot be found.  

Appreciate all help in proceeding!

Try to run scanpst.exe against the corrupted pst

Apologies if I didn't make it clear.  I did run ScanPST, and Outlook is now able to open.  However, it has the problem detailed above in the post regarding Tasks.
Have you open the scanpst log? Probably thos tasks are corrupted

Mis-typed.  I have not looked at it at this time.  I can touch base with the client and do so.
