Endless Attempts to Synchronize

Almost without exception, every attempt to synchronize with a financial institution under the new "clearinghouse" regiment have failed. Quicken ends up simply looping through whatever half-wit attempts it is making to update the downloaded transaction. At minimum, I would expect a graceful failure message after a dozen failed attempts to update. The only way out is to kill the process using Task Manager. On the other hand if I go to the institution site and download the QFX files, they import fine and update immediately. The new "clearinghouse" strategy has been off since day one and simply continues to keep failing in a spectacular fashion. Quicken Deluxe R32.12 Build Windows 10 Pro 1909 OS Build 18363.1082

    3. Type "yes" to sign out  

    4. Sign back in using your existing Quicken ID  

    Once this has been completed, please attempt to update once more and let us know the results.

    In addition to the above I recommend the following:
    If you haven't rebooted Windows since you installed the latest software update, please do so now and then try Quicken again.
