Are you getting errors on any of the other systems? Was the program actually registered on that system before? Did you uninstall/reinstall from this system? What, if anything, have you changed on this system that you haven't done on the others?

Just out of curiosity, did you by this from Intuit or retail or of the internet? (You don't have to answer if you don't want to.)

Sounds like it was not registered and it is attempting to register online.   If you go to help.....about Quickbooks it will tell you.
Uninstalling and reinstalling will not help if it is not registered.  

if you make sure the computer has no internet connection when it tries to register it will bring up a screen and a phone number to call to obtain a registration code so it can be registered.

Register QuickBooks is available on the Help menu only if you have not yet registered your copy of QuickBooks. You can verify that your copy of QuickBooks is registered by pressing the F2 key when QuickBooks is open. The Product Information window displays either REGISTERED or UNREGISTERED based on the registration status.

You're going to have to call if you're getting that error msg.

If the program has been registered, you won't see the option. If that's that case, try HELP>Manage My License>Sync License Data Online. If you get an error, wait a minute and try again. (Mine never goes the first time) This my fix your problem all together.

If it still doesn't stop the message, call 800-324-6214 and talk to a rep. They should be able to either fix the issue, or explain what's going on.
