Quicken will not load. Removed and reinstalled which did not fix the problem. Even a new empty data file will not load. Not beingsuccessful with Quicken help calls.....

    Are you running Quicken Subscription?  If so, which version?
    If you are running a version earlier than Subscription (Quicken 2017 or before), which one?

    1) Quicken removal is complicated. Google it and there are websites that describe how to remove it manually because the removal tool does not fully remove it.
    2) I had this issue and the only thing that solved it was a complete reinstall of  windows. Something got corrupted and even a clean install of quicken would only work for a time.  Since I did a clean windows install, I have zero crashes.

    I have been able to start Quicken (latest subscription version) by running as administrator. I loaded the data file on another laptop and have no problem opening it. A Quicken service tech suggested my windows user id was damaged and causing the problem. Does this make any sense?

    Anyone having a problem with crashes have Controlled Folder Access enabled in Windows Defender?

    Also, you could try booting Windows into Safe Mode with Networking and running Quicken.
