Windows 7 needs QuickBooks V2010 or above and I have found that having one Version is really best.

When you have QuickBooks open with a Company File, close the Company File first before closing QuickBooks. See if that helps. However, if the file is closed before you close QuickBooks, you will not damage the file.

You can always Verify the file (QuickBooks Utilities) to see if the file has any errors that need to be corrected with a Rebuild (another QB utility).

So a faster system or more memory won't really help with a system that running a few different version of quick books..... this is an accountant that tells me he needs a few different version running in order to service his customers..... but with all of this running I don't believe when closes out of any version of quickbooks it not really closing the connection to the data base... I could be wrong...... any advise to help with this??

In QuickBooks, File, Close Company does, in fact, close the database connection. I suggest you do this as a good practice. I always do this and never have errors. Try it and see if your error occurs or only occurs when exiting QuickBooks without a file open.
