Hi there Waterville Playshop,
We can start at suppressing the QuickBooks program when opening it. This way, we can isolate the issue and working smoothly again. I'll show you how.
If QuickBooks freezes, please download the QuickBooks Refresher Tool to perform a mini repair on your QuickBooks Desktop.
You can also read this article for future reference: Clean install QuickBooks Desktop.
Leave a comment below anytime if you have additional concerns. I'll be around to help.
