QuickBooksPro2007 taking forever to load

Posted on 2007-10-05

I've been using QuickBooks for years.  Recently I upgraded to QuickBooksPro2007, and it takes FOREVER to load.  Whereas my old QB used to load in, say, 10 seconds at the most, QBP2007 takes at least 30-40 seconds, sometimes longer.  Nothing has changed on my computer.

Anybody know of a workaround for this, like maybe a quick-start TSR for this particular program?

I know this might sound trivial, but when you're in a hurry a minute seems like an eternity.

    I noticed that the minimum memory requirement for Quickbooks 2007 has increased from 128MB (2006 version) to 256 MB.  You might need to add memory on your computer.

    Accepted Solution

    That last thing I could think of without blaming a bloated Quickbooks software, would be hard drive defragmentation.

    I've looked around the internet, and it looks like a lot of people are having the same issue as you are.

    I cannot reproduce your problem from my side, but I hope someone else in this site can help you.

    Defragged and didn't solve the problem, but that was the closer solution of the two.
