Delete multiple Bill and Income reminders

How can I select multiple bill and income reminders to delete them? I ran a repair on my quicken file and now there are tons of bill and income reminders which have a due date of none and are listed as only once. Where did all this garbage come from and how can I quickly get rid of it?

    Before restoring a Quicken file backup (or opening an earlier version of a Quicken file), I suggest deleting the Quicken Cloud dataset (aka cloud account) associated with the Quicken file.  Note: You need to open another Quicken file to delete the appropriate cloud account.  You may want to review: https://www.quicken.com/support/how-edit-or-delete-your-cloud-datasets-quicken-windows

    The other Quicken file needs to have a distinct file identifier so that we may delete the cloud account associated with the original Quicken file.  For example, you may create a new Quicken file (select File > New Quicken File...) without any accounts, enable sync in preferences so you may view and delete the cloud account associated with the original Quicken file. 

    This is necessary because when we open or restore an another version of the Quicken file with the same file identifier, Quicken is not resetting the cloud account appropriately at this time.  I hope they will let us know when they have addressed this issue, but for now before opening another Quicken file that has the same file identifier embedded, delete the cloud account.  

    Note: Only File > New Quicken File... generates a distinct file identifier.  All other forms of creating a Quicken file, copy the embedded identifier from another file.

    Thanks for the quick reply. My account is not synced with the cloud accounts. I try and keep all of my banking data to my local network, or on my banks secured websites.

    I was able to manually go in and delete each of the garbage reminders after about an hour of tedious work. The good news is that I backed up the file and ran another repair, and the garbage reminders did not pop back up. So I think it is fixed.

    Still not being able to select multiple items for a batch delete seems like a feature that a software package as mature as quicken should have.
    Just in case you're operating under a misconception, Quicken is synchronizing some of your data with the cloud account associated with the internal field even when sync is disabled and no accounts have been selected to be synchronized.
