Cannot see shared calendar events

I have a strange problem with one system on my domain. This specific PC, when the user opens a shared calendar within Outlook 2010, cannot view the information in the events of that (or any other shared) calendar. She can see there is an event blocked out, but there is no data within the event. If she connects from the same PC using OWA, she can view the shared calendar correctly.

I have tried repairing Outlook (Office) and removing / restoring the Outlook shared calendars but no help.

An additional finding - Even though this user can see the events in OWA, if she logs into another PC and runs Outlook, she cannot see the events there either.

Thanks for your help

I have found that this specific user has the same problem no matter what PC she logs in to. But not in OWA. It looks like an Exchange issue, so I will repost this in the Exchange forum.

PROBLEM SOLVED !!
As always the most difficult issues turn into the easiest solutions.

While searching for solutions and trying every possible trick, I noticed she was looking at her calendar in monthly view. So I changed to weekly view and i could see everything perfectly. I then looked  more closely at her calendar view choices and noticed the drop-down menu associated with the monthly view (only). On that drop-down menu there are 3 choices: Show low detail, Show medium detail, and Show high detail. She had chosen medium detail, which does show the appointment blocks but not the appointment details. Chose Show high detail and everything popped into view !
