After restart check if your error is gone, if its still there then follow further steps or other solutions listed below, if its gone, I would recommend that make a full system scan.

#2. Reboot.bat File could be your Solution

Reboot.bat is a little batch file typically put in program files folder when you set up QuickBooks. This file includes a lot of commands which have the capability in order to reset the Windows pc registry settings of QuickBooks. Windows loses or stops working to remember some pc registry settings which you can reset by Reboot.bat file.

  1. Press Win + E to open File Explorer or simply My Computer.
  2. Navigate to C: > Program Files > Intuit > QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions 10.0 (name could be different according to your version).
  3. In here find Reboot.bat file and double click it to start the reset process. Don’t worry as data is already hosted online, you won’t loose anything and its only going to reset the registry settings of QuickBooks.
  4. After successful restart, check for the error once again and see if its gone, possible chances are that your error would have gone and everything should be back to normal.

#3. Updating your QuickBooks or Re-Installing

This is a very common solution to any software related problems. Everytime you face some DLL files or other software related errors then updating the application or software could help you out. Check for the latest updates above your version installed and update it now. You should leave automatic update enabled, which in return provides you with latest features and keeps your software's running smoothly.

If updating also fails, then I would recommend that you use REVO Uninstaller to completely remove the program from your system and download the latest version from there site and install it onto your computer. A fresh install will always help you in fixing any problem.

#4. Updating your Antivirus & Running Full System Scan

Well all the software related problem’s come up due to one major problem virus, which spreads from your USB Drives and even sites that are not good to use, like torrents and ad popping sites. So its good that you install a good antivirus solution, I don’t say that you purchase any expensive software but a free Bitdefender Antivirus works pretty well and I am using it personally from 6+ years and it works great. If you are using a good antivirus solution then update it right now and start a full deep system scan, it will remove every suspicious file and will help you in removing those errors.

You can also use a free virus scanner like Kaspersky Free Virus Scan, its really nice and easily removes every single virus from your computer, it updates and downloads latest virus signatures and helps you to easily identify any suspicious file that might be causing the error.
