Re: error I keep getting everytime I try to do payroll forms

This error is caused by a file being read incorrectly, basha47. 

 

There are several troubleshooting steps you can follow to resolve the issue. First, turn off UAC temporarily. Please go to this article select the Never Notify option in Step 5: Change User Account Control (UAC) in Windows.

 

After restarting your computer, check if you already open a tax form without the error. If you're getting a similar result, please proceed to these additional options:

 

  1. Configure Firewall and Internet security settings for QuickBooks Desktop.
  2. Run Reboot.bat.
  3. Repair QuickBooks Desktop
  4. Reinstall using clean install.

Please let me know if you have other questions.
