    i just upgraded to a computer twice as fast and still same.

    Does that mean your processor chips are now twice as fast (e.g., now 3 GHz instead of 1.5 GHZ)?
    Or do you now have twice as many processor chips (e.g., now 8 CPUs instead of 4)?

    Quicken (mostly) only uses 1 CPU to do its work. There is not much parallel processing going on.

    The hard drive could be a bottleneck if lots of other activity is going on at the same time.

    On some systems MS OneDrive is now on by default, automatically backing up to a cloud drive … even if you did not explicitly activate it. This is not supported. Verify that the folder containing your active Quicken data file is NOT being processed by OneDrive.

    And take a look at this, please:
