I have been a Quicken user for many years. Two weeks ago, the Quicken 2007 program stopped opening and I got the error message "Quicken launcher has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program
and notify you if a solution is available." Yesterday, I updated to the Quicken 2009 program but still get the same error message.

Sorry to hear about the problems that you’re running into. You might have some programs running in the background of Vista that’s conflicting with your Quicken. I’m going to provide with instructions on how to clean boot your machine first.I’ll also provide you with a link on how to fix your profile. You might also need to reinstall your Quicken 2009 so please have you’re media and product key to reinstall it.
Let's try clean booting the system to remove 3rd party software and see if that clears up the problem.
Follow the steps below to place your computer in “clean boot”
Start orb on your Desktop
in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.
·On the General tab, click
·Under Selective Startup, click to
clear the Load Startup Items check box.
Services tab, click to select the Hide All Microsoft Services check box, and then
click Disable All.
When you are prompted, click Restart.
Now try your Quicken, are you still getting the same error? This will also be the best time to uninstall and reinstall Quicken if you’re still getting the error message.
Now if clean booting your machine did resolve the issue, then see the following Microsoft Article on “Clean boot” and the section “How to determine what is causing the problem” to determine which program or service maybe causing the issue.
