Outlook 2007 Reminder - the event is gone but it keeps popping up!

Hey everyone,

I have Outlook 2007 installed on my PC and it is connecting to an Exchange server at my company.  A few weeks ago, I got a pop-up for a reminder in Outlook.  I'm not quite sure how I did it, but I managed to delete the event without dismissing the reminder.

Now the reminder pops up every time I open outlook.  When I try to dismiss it, i get a notification saying the event associated does not exist.  I get a similar error when I try to open the reminder itself.

I have tries opening Outlook in safe mode, with the /cleanfreebusy and /cleanreminders switches, I have rebuilt the profile, and I have tried working in un-cached exchange mode.  I can not get this reminder to go away.

Has anyone else experienced this?
