Turning off Bills and Income Reminders
The problem seems to be that the original poster (and the responders) do not realize what is happening.
The original poster does not appear to be describing "reminders": he seems to be describing Quicken "suggesting" reminders. As in:
"A reminder that I had previously deleted came back. This time it came back asking if I "wanted to schedule" this one?
When Quicken asks if you want to "schedule" this one, Quicken is asking if you want to create a reminder.
Having Quicken "suggest" the creation of reminders is an option (two options, if you like) which can be toggled on or off using the "Options" choice in the Manage Bill & Income Reminders menu row.
[I have always had the options to suggest reminders turned off. I just installed R29.12 on my test machine, and the patch did not alter my Bill & Income Reminder Options.]
From Quicken Help:
About checking for bills I may have missed
Based on a number of factors such as consistency of payment amounts and dates, you can have Quicken identify any transactions that appear to be regular bills. Quicken performs this check whenever you close the product. You can then schedule or ignore the suggested bills in the Manage Bills & Income Reminders list (Tools menu > Manage Bills & Income Reminders).
1. Click the Bills tab.
2. Click Manage Reminders.
3. Choose Options > Suggest Reminders > Suggest Reminders based on my past activity.
What happens now?
Quicken scans your transactions and lists new candidate bills and deposits under the Schedule These? heading at the bottom of the Manage Bills & Income Reminders list (Tools menu > Manage Bills & Income Reminders).
4. If necessary, scroll to view transactions listed below the Schedule These? heading.
5. You can review the proposed bills and deposits and accept them on an individual basis, or you can reject the entire group by right-clicking in the transactions list and choosing Reject all candidate transactions.
6. To have Quicken automatically check for recurring bills on an ongoing basis, choose Options > Suggest Reminders > Review my accounts for reminders to suggest.
