Cannot access the program, it is passworded (But I never set one)
I am the only one with access to Quickbooks Pro 2003, and I have been using it for a while for a small family business. All of the sudden, starting yesterday it is asking for a user name and password to access my company information, but I have never set one up! Howcan I access my company files, and bypass the login?

There can be a couple of causes for this:
1. You are trying to open a different company file than you typically work in ( search the system for *.qbw, there may be file located in different folders)
2. A portion of the database may have become damaged.
If the database is damaged, you would need to have data recovery run on it to fix it. The problem is that you are using v 2003, which Intuit no longer supports. They only way they may fix it is if you are updating to a newer version, such as 2009.
One other thing you could try is to make a copy of the file, and see if intuits free password removal tools can reset the password.

Sounds like you have the QuickBooks Database manager running or the Quick Connect feature still installed and/or turned on. Check and see if this is the problem by going to start and then programs and see if it says QuickBooks anywhere. If it does, slide over to see which of the two listed above are on. Then go to your control panel and uninstall the program. Double check to make sure the "quickbooks" catagorey disappears from your programs and then install the new version you wish to keep.
Quicbooks 2003 runs very well in vista. To know how to get it running, you need to have administrative rights and then you run as administrator the quickbooks icon on the desktop of vista. if you have a problem, please email me email@example.com . I will be willing to assist in details.
QuickBooks Pro 2003 can run on Windows Vista. Right-click a shortcut to open Quickbooks (or qbw32.exe directly) and click on Properties. Select the Compatibility tab. Under Compatibility Mode, check the box and select Windows XP (Service Pack 2) from the list. Under privilege level, select "Run this program as an administrator." Select OK and everything will work.
If I remember correctly you have the option to share quickbooks or to use it exclusively....(and it was part of the setup). Fixing that (should be some reference to it in the help menu) cures one problem. Not being able to close it is a different problem. I can't remember exactly but I do know there was a decision somewhere in the set up that allowed you to share or not share the database. If others are signed on perhaps that is why you can't sign off. Just some thought to hopefully point you in the right direction.
