Hi  guys!
I recently used the abandon transaction option in Bitcoin Core when a transaction did not get confirmed after weeks. It worked and the coins were credited back to my wallet. Today the same transaction is back on and again in unconfirmed status (without me doing anything)
I'm using version 0.15.0.1 on Windows 10

This is the transaction:

2dfb5563c084ba62acbc66d46071630a13c5683dec8598b66f4973ecd5b42657

What happened here and what can I do to abandon the transaction?

You simply used the AbandonTransaction option in bitcoin core?

Is it currently greyed out? You could try to delete the mempool.dat, then, use walletbroadcast=0 and try to abandon the TX again.

Alternatively, use -zapwallettxes if all the above doesn't work. It should remove the transaction, (and all other unconfirmed transactions)
