Recently my QuickBooks 2010 installation went south on me. Perhaps it had to do with issues I've had with Adobe, but I can't say for sure. All I know is that I would get errors when I tried to reconcile accounts and those errors came at the end, when the program was trying to preview a reconciliation report.
But my program was up-to-date and after the cluster-you-know-what of trying to reinstall from the CD and update from there, I decided instead to just go to http://support.quickbooks.intuit.com/support/productupdates.aspx and download the entire, most-recent version of the program. What a difference!
First uninstall QuickBooks. Yes, this is a pain, but you have to do it or you will end up with two different installations.
Next, be sure to download it to your desktop and right-click and "Run as an Administrator" if you are in Vista or Windows 7. Heck, maybe in XP too if that's an option. Of course, you need your serial number and product number to make this work, so if you are just looking for a free copy, you'll have to look elsewhere.
I've found the program seems faster since doing this reinstall of the latest version and so I have to recommend that to you.
