Very Slow To Update Prices

After the update bar completes, it takes about 2 minutes before the actual update completes and that I can continue to use the program.  Any suggestions?

    Are you running Quotes Update as part of One Step Update?
    Or are you running it separately from a Menu bar selection?
    How many securities are in your Security List? How many of those do you currently own? And how many are marked as on "Watch List"?
    A slow quotes update of many dozens or hundreds of quotes can be trimmed down by unchecking "Watch List" on unnecessary security entries.

    Thank you for getting back to me. 

    Yes I am still having very slow updates and slowness throughout program. 

    There are 56 positions in my portfolio of which 17 are options. I update the options manually.(The manual update is also very slow)

    All positions are owned.

    I update by using the update tab button on top of portfolio screen.

    I do not understand what you mean by "watch list".  Where can I uncheck items? 

    My QDF file is 85MB. Have been a quicken user for about 15+ years.  I have another account that is much smaller and runs much faster. 

    Any help you can give is much appreciated.  Thanks. Don

    Bring up Tools / Security List.
    You will find a column "Watch List" there.
    By default, any new security you add will be added to the Watch List, too (unless you pay attention and uncheck the Watch LIst box).
    The Watch List is an optional part of your Portfolio Views, when grouped by account. You can use it to track stocks which you don't own.

    I have found the security list tab. It contains a huge list of closed option positions accumulated over the years. Both the watch and quote boxes are checked. I assume this is main reason for my problem. Is there an easy way to uncheck the boxes or must I do this one security at a time?  Also would things improve if I hide these securities? Also is there an easy way to do this?  Do not want to do anything that might change historical value of the portfolio as I need this for reports.  Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    Back up you file first to be sure, but you should be able to hide securities and un-check the Watch List and Download Quotes boxes for securities you no longer hold without affecting historical prices.

    I don't know any way of doing this in bulk.
