Money 2005 very slow after Accept button pressed


R

Robert Sorrells

Is there any way to speed up Money 2005 Deluxe? The transaction accept
takes about 10 seconds. I confirmed that there are no upgrades or updates
going on in the background.

I've got 1G of DRAM and a 2.4G Pentium running 2000 Pro.

Thanks,
Bob

Also... I removed everything from the "Home" page and restarted. Still
slow.

Try making a copy of your file, and then removing the Passport. Try
making as few of your accounts budget accounts as you can.

Down to about 9 seconds... this is useless. Its really sad, but I wish I
had the DOS version of Quicken.

I experience this too. The only cure I've found is tuning in your favorite
stream on shoutcast before launching Money. Makes the wait far less
frustrating - isn't it the ultimate goal. I never use Money without the
headphones.

Its sad that any company would knowingly sell software with such a defect.
I wonder if Quickbooks can import Money 2005?

I agree with you Robert. They should refund the money back everyone that
bought this program. Maybe we aren't complaining to the right people. I
have been trying for 4 weeks to get tax related print outs and my program
keeps changing some of the categories. Now I don't think I would get very
far with the accountants if I go in there and lay out the reports with
Office Supplies categorized under Horse Feed.

I wish I would have had enough sense to do that way back in January when I
got the program. Long story short after 6 straight non-stop hours on the
phone with Microsoft trying to fix some of the money problems, THEY not I
took some careless actions which caused me to lose all of my money data for
the past years since 1997. Fortunately I had good back ups. I then went
ahead and reformatted, and insisted on them sending me a new program. If I
would have had any brains back then I would have just bit it and lost a month
of data and went back to 2004. Now it is too late but one way or another I
WILL get my money back for this program or I will go straight to the Better
Business Bureau about the defective program they have sold thousands. These
money programs are still on the market even though Microsoft is aware of the
problems.

I'm not sure the BBB would phase Microsoft. Good luck in the endeavor,
though.
