To begin, close out your payroll and then open the desktop version to download the latest release. Then, open the company file to select the QuickBooks icon.
Next, choose Check for QuickBooks Updates to hit the Install Update button. When prompted, click the Install and Relaunch button.

If you continue to get the same result, I suggest switching to a different browser.
