How to remove old reconciled transactions downloaded from Quicken Bill Pay?

I'm currently using Quicken 2012 on a Windows 7 PC. I am also using Quicken Bill Pay. I'm a long time user of both products (over 15 years) and have had no problems until recently. I've spent all day trying to get help, but neither Quicken Support nor Quicken Bill Pay Support can help me. Let me try to describe the problem:

Quicken Bill Pay has downloaded 301 old transactions into my two checking accounts. These transactions date as far back as 2005, and all have a Status of either 'Date Changed', 'Pmt Changed', or 'Payee Changed'. The problem is that there is NO delete option for these transactions. The only option is to 'Accept' the transactions. BUT, when I accepted the transactions, they CHANGED the category, which then totally messed up my Quicken data.

I have restored my last backup from BEFORE the Quicken Bill Pay download problem. But then the next time I did a One Step Update all the old Quicken Bill Pay transactions were downloaded again.

Quicken Bill Pay Support could not help me, and referred me to Quicken Support. Quicken Support tried to help, but only managed to replicate the problem and yet claimed the problem was resolved!

So my problem remains:
How do I remove the old reconciled transactions downloaded from Quicken Bill Pay without accepting them?

Thanks for your help!

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.
