    I keep receiving a reminder for an Outlook recurring appointment that no longer exists. I deleted the recurring series some time ago. The message reads as follows:

    "Cannot turn off reminder. You may be reminded again. Cannot locate recurrence information for this appointment."

    Any ideas on how to turn off this most annoying reminder would be appreciated.

    Try to open Outlook with the switch "/cleanreminders"
    Syntax would be like this (without quotations):
    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office11\Outlook.exe /cleanreminders"

    Type that on the RUN command line (Start, Run).

    I think it might work if you type only "outlook /cleanreminders"

    Many thanks for your prompt reply and answer. I really do appreciate this kind of help.

    Both suggested techniques of opening Outlook using "cleanreminders" worked in opening Outlook. Now it is just a matter of time on making sure the recurring reminder does not once again reappear but I assume it has been taken care of.

    My problem appears to be a not uncommon problem based upon a Google search and with several other posts on Tech Guy so your suggestion is of value to others.
