One Step Update Hangs and will not Update Accounts

I saw the post today from Quicken Sarah that said this issue was resolved but I still am unable to update through one step update as I always do. The screen hangs and the only way I can exit is to force close through task manager. I am a Windows user and Quicken subscriber. The issue started after Quicken installed an update earlier today.

    If you haven't rebooted Windows since you installed the latest software update, please do so now and then try Quicken again.

    Still not working?

    Let's try some "Troubleshooting 101" to ensure the Quicken software is installed and updated properly and that your data file is in good working order.
    Please perform all the steps in this document in the order specified:

    Thank you UKR for your response. I went through all of your instructions and, unfortunately, the issue still persists. I did not restore as the issue is reminiscent of the Quicken issue many of us experienced in 3-4 months ago when one step update did not work AND it happened right after an update.

    QUICKEN - please comment and advise what you are seeing.
  • I have the same problem...I went thru the Troubleshooting 101 suggestions, and Quicken still hangs during the One Step Update. It gets as far as "Updating Financial Institution Information and comes to a halt. Task Manager's End Task is the only way out of Quicken.

    I tried using 1/1/2020 data file, which used to work, but the problem still exists. I suspect that the data file isn't the problem, but what is?

    I'm open to suggestions!

    Thanks for sharing the above. It did not work for me as those where already my settings. Additionally, I do not believe that Quicken uses IE or Edge for connectivity.

    Quicken does rely on Windows DLLs impacted by Windows Internet Options settings.

    Given that @UKR 's troubleshooting didn't work for you and that the problem seems to have started after an update to Quicken I would first try installing the latest patch from here:

    And if that does work I would try the QcleanUI process to get a clean uninstall and then try the install again:

    And if all that fails I would follow @[email protected]_Tyka 's advice and contact Quicken support.

    SOLUTION: quicken startup uses at least two [removed - inaccurate] sites which [may be flagged by] your virus protection software (Malwarebytes,....) and Quicken hangs. The sites (at least today) are and

    The workaround is to disable virus protection completely to run quicken....or tell the virus detection software to accept both of those IP's.

    Neither of the above is acceptable......but we are at the mercy of Quicken.
