Quoting Jerry Criswell <criswel at>:

> I attempted an import of all my accounts from Quicken 2006 for Home &
> Business which failed miserably.  None of the accounts contained all of
> their transactions or had the correct balances, so I decided to attempt
> importing just my share draft account.  When I did that, it loaded the QIF
> file, but when I got to the part about where to put it, it still shows all
> the information from the last import.  Well, I can fix that, I said, and
> deleted and reinstalled GC.  Started GC and it complained that it couldn't
> find the tutorial file. That makes sense because I deleted it, but how
> does it know that if I deleted and reinstalled GC.  I created a new
> tutorial file with one account and tried the import again.  It still shows
> all the info from the original import fiasco.  I'd like to start over with
> a clean slate so what do I have to delete besides GC to start over?
