Can you please click start, Control Panel.

click uninstall a program, click on Turbo Tax, click Change then repair.

Let this complete and when it has, tell me if it now opens please.

I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.

Else let me know the results please

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I have already done this. It does't fix the problem
Expert:  Richard replied 8 months ago.

ok, then you will need to reinstall it and see if it keeps your data, only option left.

So go to control panel, uninstall a program and choose it and select uninstall

Restart the computer, install it again and let me know if it now opens.

It should be able to load your data again as the uninstall wont remove this
