Mystery Folder - Cannot Delete

A mysterious folder (PST) has appeared in the folder list of my installation
of Outlook 2003. When I attempt to remove it I get the following error:

"You cannot close the folder that contains for your calendar, contacts, and
inbox."

However, this is some additional folder and contains none of those things.
I have verified that all inbox items, etc... are going into my primary
personal folders. In addition, I have inspected where the PST's are saved
and there are no other PST files in the directory.

How can I delete this? It gives a cryptic name of <0w#25> as the PST file
name when I right-click and attempt to close it.

Thanks! That was the perfect fix. While I could not figure it out manually
the first freeware option you noted was simple and effective.
