Slow to open quicken

for about two months quicken is taking what seems a long time to open. It takes at times 2 minutes or longer to open my quicken file. Some times it seems to crash and creates an orphaned process and I have to control-alt-delete and kill the process before quicken will even attempt to start again. I have not added any new accounts or made any changes in the last 6 months. I have ran the validate and super validate process in the past two weeks. Any ideas??

    Hello @majkstamp,

    Thank you for taking the time to visit the Community and telling us about your issue, though I apologize that you are experiencing this.

    I suggest that you perform a clean uninstall/reinstall (this is different from simply uninstalling and reinstalling the program) which will clear out and replace the existing configuration files for Quicken (this does not affect any of your data and/or backup files).

    To do so, please refer to this support article and scroll down to the section titled If the steps above do not resolve the issue. Then, open and follow the instructions found in the blue dropdown sections titled First: Download and use QCleanUI and Second: Rename Quicken Shared Folders.

    I hope this helps!
