Don't delete the file just move it to the desktop, if that solves your problem then move it to the trash and delete it.

Thanks for the reply but I can't find the com.apple.xxx files. Can you point me to them ?

The file is located in the ~library>preferences To get to your library file you will need to be in the finder then hold down the option key while clicking the go menu item, then select library.

I can't find any files com.apple.xxx related to Calendar or iCal. I have looked under Macintosh HD\Library\Preferences and also Macintosh HD\Users\myusername\.
FYI - I logged on as a guest user and Calendar worked fine, Preferences and all. So the issue is with my profile.

You need to go into your Mac HD>users>yourname>library>preferences>com.apple.iCal.plist,

Since the Guest account works, try using your regular account in the Safe Mode.
Shut down the computer and then power it back up. Immediately after hearing the startup chime, hold down the shift key and continue to hold it until the gray Apple icon and a progress bar appear. The boot up is significantly slower than normal.

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried Safe Mode but Calendar still doesn't display Preferences, either in Safe Mode or in regular boot mode.

Since it is only occurring in the one account and it doesn't seem to be related to 3rd party software, try doing a permissions repair on your main account.
To do this,boot to your Recovery partition (holding down the Command and R keys while booting) and open Terminal from the Utilities menu. In Terminal, type: 'resetpassword' (without the 's) and select the admin user. You are not going to reset your password. Click on the icon for your Macs hard drive at the top. From the drop down below it select the user account which is having issues. At the bottom of the window, you'll see an area labeled Restore Home Directory Permissions and ACLs. Click the reset button there. The process takes a few minutes. When complete, restart.

I followed your instructions, but no change to the Calendar behavior.
