How can I delete a bogus acct

A new account appeared. I deleted the only transaction in the account. I've run file validation - nothing.
When I open the Accounts list, the edit button is unresponsive. When I right-click on the account nothing happens.
The account balance is shown as a long string of unformatted numbers even though there are no transactions.

    What version, edition level (Starter, Deluxe, etc.) and release (R xx.xx) of Quicken are you using?
    US, Canadian or other country version?
    What is your subscription expiration date?
    Click Help / About Quicken (Mac: Quicken / About Quicken) to get this information.
    I would suspect that your Quicken data file became damaged and needs to be restored from a Manual or Automatic Backup taken prior to the problem first occurring, if necessary going back to older backups until you find a file that does not exhibit these symptoms.

    Hello @TerryT,

    Thank you for reaching out to the Community and telling us about your issue as well as providing the information previously requested by UKR, though I apologize for the trouble you are experiencing.

    Have you also already tried UKR's suggestion of restoring a previously saved backup file? If so, please follow up with us and let us know how that went! Thank you.
