    I am having the same issue since about the 3rd week of December, 2009.  I tried backing up the data and completely reinstalling it on a new computer with XP pro.  I did a restore with the data taken over and it still gives me the same integer overflow error, so it is something in the data.  Please assist.

    4. Uninstall quickbooks completely by removing even its registry forders then make a clean         and new installation of quickbooks if you still have a copy.
