Did you encounter an Intuit::AFX error when trying to close your company file? If yes, there might be another program that’s waiting on a response from you and its components didn’t completely shut down last time you closed it.

Here’s how:

  1. Go to your Task Manager and select the Process tab.
  2. Find and highlight the application and QuickBooks-related processes that starts with QBW32.EXE and qbupdate.exe.
  3. Click End Processes.

Then, close the company file:
