"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!

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.

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