I got back from my appointment this afternoon and got home early enough to take care of a few things and the first thing I decided to do was see if I could update by way of Quicken and you guessed it, it worked. So at that point I had to call the bank and ask what was up. and I was told Quicken and Quickbooks was down for everyone over the week-end. They made it clear it was not 53rd's fault, but Quicken's. So one reflex is what a relief, another is the thought of all Triple Helix did for me over the week-end. Then MikeR comes along wanting to help on both my issues. Thank you to all.
I have to add one other thing here since MikeR posted here, I have the instructions to uninstall teatimer.exe, but I can't seem to find it on the offending machine. I will check back here, but will continue to look so hopefully I can make an effort to get the tray icon issue fixed.
Thank you all of you.
