I have a few tasks that don't seem to want to delete. I can try hitting the flag button for completion, remove any reoccurances, and even remove from list or delete, but they keep poping back in to my task panel after a few minutes.

When I am on the "To-Do List" option, they are shown in my task list, but when I choose the "Tasks" option they are gone. However, they never go away in my expanded tool-bar or when I am in calendar view.

Any help would be great!

To which mailserver is your Outlook connected? Is this a corporate installation using Exchange Server? – Tex Hex Aug 6 '11 at 11:04
It's a university exchange server (although I have other IMAP accounts on my Outlook). However, they seem to sync up to my laptop which my IMAP accounts can't do. – dobrodrummer Aug 6 '11 at 17:00

Okay, I have actually figured out my problem:

Although I do have an exchange account, the tasks that kept popping up where not associated with that account. Instead, I looked through my other IMAP accounts in the delete folder and ended up finding them there. Once I deleted the files from that folder the tasks deleted for good and I haven't seen them since!
