trying to delete account, quicken bombs

s35flyer1 Member ✭✭
I have an account that is messed up somehow. I am trying to delete it to re-add and when ever i right click it to get the edit box where the delete button is quicken bombs. Windows 10 64bit. Quicken also bombs when I try to display the holdings in the account (brokerage). I looked for some other way to delete it and cant find one. If I could get it deleted it would be a snap to re add. I tried restoring from a backup but that must just be the data, there is something in the account that quicken is hitting and simply bombs. Used to work for a software company and we called these forced abends, where it was an unknown error.
