I can’t start quicken any more

i have been using Quicken for 28 years.   Suddenly, when I try to open my Quicken file, I get a request to log in, using my I’d and password.  This is irritating and time consuming in itself, but when I do this I felt the message “success” and then everything freezes and I can’t get into my file.  Help!

    Have you run a validate? Unless you added a file password, login requirements have not changed and may point to a file corruption issue.

    Hi @jgenden ,

    It is quite possible that your files in your Temp Folders, one in Windows and one in Local in your Windows ID has grown too large. Do you clean up your Hard Drive and Windows Registry, regularly or not?

    You haven't disclosed any operating system or Quicken information.

    And are you using more than one Quicken Data File?
