QB Issue Resolution:
“I wasn’t aware of this until I got a phone call from a foreign man”
That is a Scam.
Intuit would not call You like this. Intuit would never “know” your computer is not connecting.
How do you know it is not connecting?
“and then he quoted me a ridiculous prices to fix this.”
Of course he did.
Launch your program, even to the No Company Open screen is fine. Use F2. Look at the first line: Product Info. It should show R7. Please see my screenshot.
If not, then go to Help menu > Update QB…
Select All Options from the Updates tab. Save. Click on the Update Now, and Reset and Get a full update, now.
