    Assisted Solution

    I am assuming that the "Display the reminder" option is checked in Tools > Options > Other > Advanced Options > Reminder Options.

    Next, try the following:

    Close Outlook.
    Open Run and type outlook /cleanreminders

    This will launch Outlook and clean any corrupted items from your reminder folder.

    If still no success, then check for and un-install the Update for Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 (KB2583910).

    If this solves your problem, you can reinstall this update and apply the hotfix that Microsoft has available to adress this issue, available from here:

    You will need to click on the "View and request hotfix downloads" link at the top of the page.

    Please post back and let us know if you are successful.
