    Does anyone know how I can stop reminders showing up when I do a spotlight search on my macbook air running OSX 10.9.2? I have turned off iCloud sync for reminders on my phone and mac in settings. I have also deleted all reminders from the Reminders app on my macbook air but they still keep showing in spotlight.

    I have also re-indexed the spotlight as thought this might help but hasn't.

    If anyone has any ideas or tips would be hugely appreciated.

    System Preferences > Spotlight uncheck "Events & Reminders".

    I'd start by updating to 10.9.5 and all the updates that will come after you do that. 10.9 got a LOT more stable as it progressed and 10.9.5 may actually solve the problem you're having.

    Thanks for this, yep the reminders don't show in Spotlight when I uncheck in System Preferences > Spotlight uncheck "Events & Reminders" but does anyone know how I can delete the reminders entirely from my computer? I would like to remove them completely them from my computer for privacy reasons as this is a work computer
