    There appears to be many QuickBooks users trying to "send" in the Online
    Banking Center who receive an error message referencing OL-202 with
    inability to complete the connection. Unfortunately, QuickBooks tech support
    and my financial institution tech support could not find an answer to this
    problem.

    By trial and error I found the solution was easy. Before "sending" just
    disable your Internet Explorer "popup blocker". Now I can send perfectly
    without a problem.

    Hope this helps someone else (feel free to send me $5 if this works for
    you.....lol)

    Call both the bank and QB tech support and clue them. Might help someone
    else.

    Why is your bank sending you a pop-up? Don't they know that's impolite?

    Many sites send pop-ups as a way of giving you a status on your download or
    transactions. As long as the popup is coming from that site then don't worry
    about it.

    But many, many, millions, more sites send pop-ups to advertise all manner of
    unspeakable things. That's why pop-up blockers exist - and why pop-up
    blockers are built-in to some operating systems.

    Pop-ups were a good idea that got abused into oblivion. Legitimate sites
    should recognize that reality and refrain.

    I agree with you 100%. Most spyware is the result of popups gone bad.

    And that's why some folks use Mozilla and Firefox with builtin popup
    blockers. I can control which sites can use pop ups and not the other way
    around.

    If you're not using a Micros~1 product as your browser, you'll void your
    warranty. If Firefox was any good, Micros~1 would have bought the company.
    Ergo....

    And before you ask, no, the fact that I have bags of Micros~1 stock does not
    influence my opinion.

    How do you void your warranty and where are you getting this info? I've
    never seen anything dicating what browser I have to use as my default
    browser.

    What warranty?

    How could MSFT buy a company that has no stock or "owners" per se?
    It's part of the Mozilla open source organization which is loosely
    connected to Netscape which is loosely connected to AOL, et cetera, et
    cetera, et cetera. On top of that, the browser is GPL'd and as such,
    anyone can take the source and redistribute it even after MSFT bought
    the company.

    That has to be one of the funnier posts I've read in a long time.
    BTW, I sold my boatload of MSFT stock just after the $3.00 dividend
    and it still doesn't affect my opinion.
