Billminder has dead entries?

Windows 10, Quicken Deluxe R23.17 Build 27.1.23.17
I removed a credit card I canceled but Billminder insists on reminding
me to pay it every month and shows it overdue each previous month, how
can I clear the entries out of Billminder?
NOTE: If the canceled card exists anywhere in Quicken I sure can't find
it... it appears only in Billminder.

Locate and delete the Windows file, QW.RMD.
The next time you exit Quicken, the reminders from the Quicken file (the QDF)file) you have open will be updated into QW.RMD (Quicken will create a new QW.RMD when the old one has been deleted).
[QW.RMD contains the reminders from all Quicken files you open.]

Thanks, BTDT. Searched the entire PC and removed all .rmd files, rebooted, ran Quicken and the dead entries are right back in Billminder. Odd, I recall doing this in Windows 7 and several previous versions and it worked, not sure why it's not working now?
I found two QW.RMD files on drive L: which is the drive from my Windows 7 box, when the power supply died I got new Win10 box and dumped the Win7 drive in as a spare, if those files are back I'll know Windows didn't let me delete them (but it said it did?) and maybe Admin can get rid of them?
I shall log off, reboot as administrator (the REAL admin account) and see if deleting the files will stick, I have no other ideas.

That cleared the entries and they came right back after I ran Quicken so the problem seems to be Q, not Billminder. Hmmmm.... needs further thought, not gonna happen tonight, I'm vegging out until bedtime!

As I indicated in my previous response, every time you exit Quicken, it rebuilds QW.RMD based on the Reminders in the file you have open when you exit.
If the unwanted reminder is re-appearing in BIllminder, that Reminder is in a Quicken file you have used. [If you have multiple Quicken files, QW.RMD will contain the Reminders from each file you open, then close.
You can start Billminder after deleting QW.RMD but before opening Quicken to verify that QW.RMD is empty.
You may want to try Validating your Quicken file. Best to make a Quicken Copy of your data, then Validate the Copy. If exiting from the Validated Copy does not re-create the unwanted Billminder entry, keep using the Validated Copy.

Thanks, BTDT several times, checked again and the closed account doesn't show up anywhere that I can fimd (but obviously it's somewhere!)

I'm now using only one Quicken file.
Have done so, each time it's empty.
Made a copy, deleted the .rmd file, opened it to verify it was empty, opened and closed the Validated Copy (no errors) and all the old entries are back in Billminder. Wonder why I can't find 'em in Quicken?

Somehow in the fooling around I did, my home view became changed, I clicked on the tab for "Bills and Income" and there was the canceled credit card, right on top. I deleted it and all is well with Billminder BUT!!!!! When I previously clicked on "Tools" it was nowhere in any of the listings.... ????
I had never used the tabs on the home screen before in the many years I've used Quicken (since Windows 95 or earlier), never needed to do so. I won't ignore them again!
Thanks to all who chimed in, it became apparent the error wasn't Billminder but HAD to be in Quicken itself, w/o your help I would not have established that.
