Quicken is running SLOW, what's happening and how do I fix it?

When I enter a transaction, or download anything, it spins and spins and takes forever for the program to complete. It often gives me the "not responding" answer if you try to move on, and asks if I want to wait for the program to respond. This started happening about 2 weeks ago.

    I've actually done most of this, and even had a Quicken tech take over my computer. He said it appeared that my Quicken was "trying" to update all accounts every time I entered a transaction, and that I had a lot of accounts. I've been using Quicken since 2001. In a much smaller "trial" file that I made, the problem did not occur. However, because this didn't happen until a few weeks ago, he speculated that there was a problem associated with Quicken and the website crashed that occurred when the Govt stimulus checks were issued. However, he had no real solution and so I wanted to see if anyone else is experiencing this. It takes so long for the program to even open. This doesn't happen with any other application on my computer.

    Thanks, I'll join that discussion. It sounds like it is definitely a Quicken problem.
