Quicken Unstable on Windows 10. Why?

I am running Windows 10.0.18362. For the past two weeks my Quicken version 2020 R25.10 build will not work. It starts. I get the main screen. Then within 15 to 20 seconds without me hitting a key it just disappears (shuts down). I have no idea why or what to do. I just redownloaded the current version with the same results. Any thought?

    UKR - thanks. I went thru the steps. No issues with the file. Issue persisted. I loaded a backup and it seems to have worked. I guess I caused my own issues, as I removed a lot of investment accounts from my Quicken file. This must have caused the instability. Is there a good way to remove investment accounts?
