How do i uninstall and reinstall in selective start?

Hello @dixieflying,


Let's remove your QuickBooks from the Programs and Features of your computer's Control Panel to uninstall it.

  1. Go to Start.
  2. Select Control Panel.
  3. Under Programs and Features, select Uninstall a Program.
  4. Click QuickBooks.
  5. Select Uninstall/Change.
  6. Click Remove.

Once completed, you'll have to prepare your computer in a selective startup before reinstalling the QuickBooks.

  1. Open the Run command or press Windows+on your keyboard.
  2. Enter msconfig in the Search address.
  3. Select OK.
  4. Under General, select Selective startup.
  5. On the Services tab, select Hide all Microsoft Services.
  6. Click Disable all.
  7. Select Windows Installer.
  8. Restart your computer.

Here's an article you can read to learn more: Install or uninstall QuickBooks in Selective startup.


I'm also adding a few references here for ideas in managing our account and other related tasks.
