Outlook tasks faulty - help!

I'm running Office Pro 2007 on Vista, and use the tasks in Outlook alot.
Recently the to-do-list under the tasks page has become faulty - when clicked
on 'active tasks' it simply scrolls uncontrollably at the top of the pane, as
if trying to locate my tasks. If I try to do anything from there, it crashes.
I'm also now unable to add my active tasks to the 'to-do-bar'.
I sync my tasks etc to my mobile each day through the mobile device centre
programme - wondering if this has anything to do with it??
If poss, I'd like to completely reset the tasks (even if they all
dissappear, I can re-load by resyncing from my phone).

Please help - this is proving VERY frustrating!

Close outlook and restart it with the /resettodobar switch.

I'm having the same issue on Windows 7 Enterprise, the /resettodobar
switch did not work for me.

It only seems to be happening to my mailbox This is happening in both
OWA 2007 as well as Outlook 2007 in online (non-cached) mode.

However, in cached mode, it works as expected.

Any other ideas?
