Quicken won't let me perform certain operations (like reconciliation) claiming I have too many windows open when I only have one open.  Is there a way to give the program more memory?  Is there anything else I can do? Thanks in advance.

You can try shutting down other programs that are running in the background by typing msconfig in the Start ,Run box go to the startup tab and close programs running in the background at startup.Reboot and try again

To find out if closing down programs will fix this you can try the following.

CTRL-ALT-DEL and kill off everything except SYSTRAY and EXPLORER.
Now run Quicken.

Did the reconcile routine run?  If it still doesn't run how much memory do you have on your system?  Quicken does open each item as a window within itself.  If you are short on memory add some more.  They full system specs would also be helpful.

I've triedall your suggestions and am still having the same problem.  I have a 700mhz Pentium 3 processor with 128 megs of ram.  I have about 1 gig of hard drive space remaining - 7 in all - on the disk where the program is located -  the other hard drive (it's actually it's one disk segmented into two parts) also has about a gig left with 5.4 currently in use.  Any other suggestions? How can I increase the amount of memory for that program - that is if it will help.  Thanks again.
