The Operation failed... An object cannot be found

This message appears in the calendar section of Outlook 2007.  I have previously reported issues to the forum about a 'balloon alert" where the message was " There was a problem with one or more of your reminders...Some reminders may not appear".  Forum responses suggested the "clean reminders" command which was launched several times with no success.  I now find the message "The operation failed... An object cannot be found" in the calendar section.  Several runs of the diagnostics have yielded no errors.  Still seeking solutions.
Much thanks for the support.  Before I proceed please know that the instructions from kb-312354 address the issue when send/recieve is launched.  My circumstance is different.  Send/recieve mail works.   However, when outlook is launched and then calendar I see the message under the "To Do" Bar.  Would the kb article address this specific issue?  Please advise.

The error comes up in the task area of the To-do bar?  For some reason, i picked up on the reminders and missed the to-do bar part - sorry. :)

When you see "The operation failed. An object could not be found."  where the Task List is.  Also, in the To-Do List in the Tasks module, "Cannot display the folder." The fix is to start outlook with the /resettodobar switch.
