Quicken locks up after downloading transactions!

I started Quicken today (after it updated) and downloaded my transactions as usual. But now, Quicken continually switches back and forth between full-window and full-screen modes without ever stopping or responding to clicks. It is entirely UNUSABLE!
For a long time I have been annoyed by Quicken's flipping between full-window and full-screen mode, but until now the flipping has always stopped after a couple flips. This latest update has made the mode-flipping continual and eternal.

    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?

    Why does Quicken EVER go into full-screen mode? I have never asked for that or wanted it. As I mentioned, it used to be merely annoying--it would flip back into window mode after a moment, and stay there so I could get work done. But now, the flipping just continues forever.

    I have found a workaround. When I minimize all other windows, Quicken no longer flips into full-screen mode at all.
