If you are asking about normal calendar of Vista then try to Restore your system with previous date.

It it may possible that some OS files will be corrupted.

Restore your system then try,

Did this just happen recently? Was it working before? Has anything changed on your computer like new hardware or software installed or updates applied?

Check for corrupt system files and then try a restore:
To run the System File Checker tool, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.
Right-click cmd in the Programs list, and then click Run as administrator.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue
At the command prompt, type the following line, and then press ENTER:
sfc /scannow
When the scan is complete, test to see whether the issue that you are experiencing is resolved.

To restore the operating system to an earlier point in time, follow these steps:
Click Start, type system restore in the Start Search box, and then click System Restore in the Programs list.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue.
In the System Restore dialog box, click Choose a different restore point, and then click Next.
In the list of restore points, click a restore point that was created before you began to experience the issue, and then click Next.
Click Finish.
The computer restarts, and the system files and settings are returned to the state that they were in at the time that the restore point was created.

If you are still getting access denied, try temporarily turning off user account control:
1. Open User Accounts by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking User Accounts and Family Safety (or clicking User Accounts, if you are connected to a network domain), and then clicking User Accounts.

2. Click Turn User Account Control on or off. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

3. Select the Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer check box to turn on UAC, or clear the check box to turn off UAC, and then click OK.

To open Windows Calendar go to Start Menu - All Programs and click on its shortcut. If you want to create a calendar you have to go to the File menu and select New Calendar. Then, you need to type the name of the new calendar and then press the Enter key.

Windows Calendar

If you want to rename it, select the calendar, right click on it and then select Rename from the menu. You can create as many calendars as you like and you can even organize them in different groups.

There are hotfixes that might help if you are having problems with the Windows Calendar but both are included in SP1.

Another way to try clean boot your system

Disable all startup items and third party services when booting. This method will help us determine if this issue is caused by a loading program or service.

The steps below will place your computer into a “clean boot”, meaning using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs so that we can determine whether a background program is interfering.

·     Click Start on your Desktop
·     Type msconfig in the Start Search box and then press ENTER.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.
·     On the General tab, click Selective Startup.
·     Under Selective Startup, click to clear the Load Startup Items check box.
·     Click the Services tab, click to select the Hide All Microsoft Services check box, and then click Disable All.
·     Click OK.
·     When you are prompted, click Restart.

 Once the computer is back to your Desktop, check to see if you are still having the problem.
