Bug with the latest release of Quickbooks.

With the latest release of Quickbooks update people have reported several issues with it.

I am talking about R7P for Quickbooks 2016 and R10P for Quickbooks 2015 ( one can press f2 while quickbooks is open to check the release)

In most cases Quickbooks keeps asking you to change the password again and again and goes in a loop and in some cases it wont open the file at all, and by any chance if you are able to open the file it encrypts all sensitive information in that specific file which can either be fixed by editing the those sensitive information’s or by restoring a backup prior to the update.

Currently intuit dose not have a fix for it and working on it however the workaround is to downgrade the release of it. But the question is how?

Here is the answer, Simply uninstall your quickbooks from your computer and reinstall with a older release version of quickbooks, If you have purchased a hard copy (cd) then you may use it to reload it back on the computer and shut down the automatic update for quickbooks till the bug is fixed with in the new release or download Quickbooks with lower release from here if you don’t have the original disc.

Download Quickbooks Pro 2016 R5P    (Same setup file can be used for Pro and Premier)

Download Quickbooks Pro 2016 R6P

Download Quickbooks Enterprice 16.0

Download Quickbooks 2015  (Same setup file can be used for Pro and Premier)

Download Enterprice 15.0

This is just a workaround until intuit fixes the their bug in the new release.

Is your computer safe & protected.?

Protect Your Computer

Online world can be dangerous therefore its important that you protect your privacy and data by using safety measures and good practices to protect your computer. The following tips will help you lower your risk while you’re online.

Install a firewall

A firewall is a software program or piece of hardware that blocks hackers from entering and using your computer. Hackers search the Internet in the same way that some telemarketers automatically dial random phone numbers. Hackers send electronic probes, or pings, to thousands of computers and wait for responses. Firewalls prevent your computer from responding to these random pings. A firewall blocks communications to and from sources you don’t permit. This is especially important if you have a high-speed Internet connection, such as DSL or cable.

Most operating systems have built-in firewalls, Make sure is its turned on. Most antivirus software that you use also has built-in firewall feature, Ensure one of them is ON. Hardware firewalls are equally important for people dealing with sensitive data. Netgear, Sisco, Watchguard a few trusted names when it comes to hardware firewall. Some of these products are available on Amazon.

Use anti-virus software

Anti-virus software protects your computer from viruses that can destroy your data, slow down or crash your computer, or allow spammers to send e-mail through your account. Anti-virus protection scans your computer and your incoming e-mail for viruses, and deletes them. Keep your anti-virus software updated to cope with the latest bugs circulating the Internet, make sure your anti-virus software is continually running and checking your system for viruses, especially if you are downloading files from the Web or checking your e-mail. set your anti-virus software to check for viruses when you first turn on your computer.

Some recommended antivirus Softwares.

Viper is a leading home antivirus protection software. It combines powerful antivirus and anti-spyware technologies with other advanced security features, including automated patching of vulnerable software programs on your PC, a firewall to stop malicious web traffic, an anti-spam filter, bad website blocker and more without slowing down your PC.

Use anti-spyware software

Spyware is software installed without your knowledge or consent. It can monitor your online activities and collect personal information while you surf the Web. Some kinds of spyware, called keyloggers, record everything you type in – including your passwords and financial information. Your computer may be infected with spyware if you receive a sudden flurry of pop-up ads, are taken to Web sites you don’t want to go to, or if your computer begins to run slowly.

Malware-bytes s the most effective when it comes to Spyware removal. Unlike antivirus products, Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit proactively prevents exploits from installing on your computer, preventing any damage from happening in the first place. Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit uses proprietary technology to protect your computer in between the release of a new exploit and its security patch. It comes with 30 days free trial but highly recommended to get a paid version & run a complete scan twice a month. Clink here to get the malwarebytes Trial.

Manage your system and browser to protect your privacy

Hackers are constantly trying to find flaws or holes in operating systems and browsers.To protect your computer and the information on it, ensure your security settings in your system and browser are set at medium or higher. Check the Tools or Options menus for how to do this. Update your system and browser regularly, taking advantage of automatic updating when it’s available. Windows Update is a service offered by Microsoft. It will download and install software updates to the Microsoft Windows operating system, Internet Explorer, and Outlook Express. It will also deliver security updates to you. Patching can also be run automatically for other systems, such as the Macintosh operating system.

Secure your wireless network

If you use a wireless network in your home, take precautions to secure it against hackers. Encrypting wireless communications is the first step. Choose a wireless router with an encryption feature and turn it on. WPA encryption is considered stronger than WEP. Your computer, router, and other equipment must use the same encryption.

Consider disabling identifier broadcasting if your router enables it. Note the name assigned to your Wi-Fi network. This name – called an SSID, or Service Set IDentifier – lets you connect your computers to the network manually. The SSID is often the equipment maker’s name, Change the SSID on your router and the pre-set administrative password. Hackers know the pre-set passwords on many wireless routers.

Consider turning off your wireless network when you’re not using it.

Remember that public hot spots may not be secure.

Avoid accessing or sending sensitive personal information over a public wireless network.

Data Backup

Don’t risk losing years worth of family photos, home videos or emails incase of any hardware malfunction. Backup your data online with MyPC Backup. With My PC Backup you can seamlessly sync your files across multiple computers, decide which files and folders you want to sync and choose where you want to sync them to.

  • Issue causing file upgrades to fail.
  • Issue preventing the Accountant Toolbox from unlocking.
  • Printing issue when using the Intuit Preprinted forms setting.

Anyone using QuickBooks 2012 & below should upgrade as they are discontinued by Intuit & all online services like Payroll, merchant services, online banking has been discontinued.

QuickBooks 2015 has got some really new cool features, here are some..

  • Insights is a new feature added on homepage gives you an overview of how your business is doing.
  • Pinned Notes is a new feature for customer or vendor to write notes so that it always shows in the Center for that list, as well as being the default note included in reports.
  • Send Portable Company File. Sending portable is much easier now.

These are just a few new feature but there are several other on the list.

Unable to print from QuickBooks

Ever came to a situation where you need to print some checks from QuickBooks but your printer wont print.

this a very frustrating situation when things don’t work the way its supposed to.

In this article i will explain the the troubleshooting printer issues. As always, first thing to do is to identify the issue & then work on fixing it.

Isolate the issue, Try printing something form a notepad or Microsoft word. If that works then it means the printer is working fine & we need to work on QuickBooks printer setting. & if you are not able to print from notepad or Microsoft word then we need to troubleshoot the actual printer.

Lets say that the situation now is that the printer works fine with other application but its just the QuickBooks that you are not able to print from.

1 : Update QuickBooks to the latest Release.

2: Run the printer repair tool.

3: Delete QBPRINT.QBP.  The printer settings are stored in a file called QBPRINT.QBP. This issue most often occurs if the file has become damaged or corrupted.

If the printing problem is due to application error then these three simple steps will resolve the issue.

Hope this helps Someone.
