Quicken Performance Tips

First, verify that your computer meets the system requirements to run your version of Quicken. If your computer meets the system requirements, here are several tips to improve performance:

  • Exit all open programs that you are not using.
  • Restart your computer, especially if it has been used for a long period of time since it was last started.
  • Remove items from the Microsoft® Windows® Startup group.
  • Run the ScanDisk utility, followed by Disk Defragmenter utility. Consult Windows Help for complete information.

If these suggestions do not improve performance, or if Quicken runs slowly in certain areas of the program only, follow the steps for basic troubleshooting to correct data file damage.
