Intuit blocking opening of QBO

Hi @BigLew,


I appreciate the attached PDF file for the details of your issue. I'll handle this query for you.


The popup window in question is a security feature we added to QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT). It retains the information for each product you purchase in one place at Intuit. With that said, you can easily download this information to your email. Once you've set up an Intuit account, the location is under the Data & Privacy section.


Need more details? Check out this article for more information: Create or open a company file using your Intuit account ID


You're always welcome to post a reply if you have any other concerns. I'll be glad to help you out.

Ok Ryan, I am not IT person. Just a user. Let me try to explain again. When quickbooks opens, it does bring up Intuit screen we discussed. HOWEVER, it will not clear the user ID box that opens pre-loaded with an OLD username email. I cannot clear they box so thus, I AM NOT getting a continue button

Thanks for getting back to us, @BigLew.


At this time, we have an ongoing issue where users aren't able to clear the user's ID box or click the buttons in the pop-up window. Rest assured that our product engineers are diligently working for a fix.


As a workaround, you can reset the Internet Explorer settings to default- Document Results. I'll show you how:


  1. Close your QuickBooks Desktop company file.
  2. Open Internet Explorer.
  3. Click the Gear button in the upper right corner and select Internet Options.
  4. Tap the Advanced tab.
  5. Click the Reset button just above the OK/Cancel/Apply buttons.
  6. Follow the prompts to restart IE or the computer if necessary
  7. Open QB and attempt to log into the company file.


Also, to ensure you'll get an update about the resolution status, I recommend contacting our Phone Support Team. This way, they can add your company to the list of affected users and provide this investigation number for easy tracking: INV-44191.


Here's how to reach them: 


  1. Go to the Help menu once you open QuickBooks.
  2. Click QuickBooks Desktop Help or press F1 on your keyboard.
  3. Select the Contact Us button. 
  4. Enter a short description of your concern in the Tell us more about your question box. 
  5. Hit Search. Select Start a message.


In case you'll want to learn some tips and best practices in managing your QBDT you can always visit our Account management page anytime.


We thank you for your patience, @BigLew. You can count me in if you need anything else.

As a user, I appreciate the concise method you offered..IT DID NOT WORK!!  QBO still comes up, says signin to QB is successful and then up comes the Intuit box with locked out username and I still cant get in. I am becoming increasingly ticked off. As a longtime QB user, I am ready to just move to another package!!!!!!!
