fix temp_account names which are preventing online set up of chase accounts

My Chase accounts stopped synching when I did one step update - the utility would run and connect to my bank, but no transactions would download (I have three chase accounts and one step update has worked fine for years - I currently am running quicken 2011).  I deleted the one step update data and made the accounts manual, then added the one step update data again and ran the utility.  This worked and the accounts synched again and downloaded data. However it would only work one time. To get it to download again a week later I would need to make the accounts manual and then add the onestep data all over again.  After doing this a few times. it stopped working. When one step update went to set up the linkage, it created temp_accounts.  it connected to chase and in the screen where you link the online data to an already created account, the screen showed "ignore" and had already linked the online account to a non-existent "temp" account.  I search for support and learned that to fix this error, you need to run the validate and repair utility.  I did that, it said it found and deleted the temp accounts.  I restarted quicken and ran the one step update set up again, and it created the temp accounts again.  I have tried running validate and repair again, but now its not recognizing/deleting the temp accounts at all.  How do I fix this problem?

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
