I have Quicken 2011. It was purchased for me by a computer

This answer was rated:

I have Quicken 2011. It was purchased for me by a computer tech i have used in the past and he installed it for me. I use it to connect to my bank accounts at Wells Fargo. I have not used it for over a year so I have had to make re-contact. What I cant do right now is connect to my bank accounts because i am being requested to enter a registration number and I do not have one. Can you help me with this?
Thanks for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to assisting you.

You wont need the registration number, but the user ID and Password XXXXX your bank (to connect to their system).

Do you have this currently? Can you check with your Bank that it is still valid please?

Please let me know

Okay Richard. I hope it works. I do have a user id and password XXXXX my bank, but for some reason it seemed like it wouldn't let me in without my Quicken registration number. I will get back to my Qucken and try what you suggest. I hope it works. If not I'll get back with you. In the meanwhile, I don't believe that I will need a monthly service you offered me for $28 per month after this free consult. So please cancel my sign up for this service. Wish me luck! please.


Ok, good luck Irene.
