Note:  I am posting this twice in hopes of hitting the correct zone(s).

URGENT help needed please:

Hello,

Does anyone know what this screenshot is?  I have a suspicion that it is interfering with my QuickBooks software running (which I really need access to tonight for tax information which must be filed by tomorrow -- the 15th).

QB will not launch.  Tried to repair software twice and each time the following image flashed just prior to the REPAIR FINISHED box.  I will post the full details of what is happening momentarily but I wanted to get this posted ASAP to improve the odds of someone seeing it who knows what it is.
 a
As closely as I can tell, the window says:

          C:\Users\Steve\AppData\Local\Temp\dofhide.exe

and the screen says:

          SQL Anywhere Command File Hiding Utility Version 11.0.1.2550

I googled both but did not find anything -- at least not anything I understand.  Also, searching that directory (with hidden files and extensions viewable) produced nothing.

Thanks


PS  I had no idea what zones to select so please move this to a more appropriate location if needed.

Thanks for the response.

I went to your link but unfortunately I know absolutely nothing about SQL or programming in general.  I did do a search for:

          SQL Anywhere Command File Hiding Utility Version 11.0.1.2550

but it returned 0 results.

Do you have any suggestions for what I ought to do?

Thanks again.

Have you tried a system restore to an earlier date ?

Also you can try create a new TEST windows profile (user) and launch the Quick book. If that works then we can conclude that the problem lies somewhere with the current profile.

Take the backup of the dofhide.exe and delete it from C:\Users\Steve\AppData\Local\Temp\dofhide.exe or rename it.

OR

Hold down the Ctrl button while QB is loading. The program will load without opening any company file.
