  • The program tries to access some servers that are no longer there. This can slow things down.

    Money never uploaded your financial numbers, but could communicate to get quotes and set up statement downloads if you explicitly set that up. That built-in capability is gone.

    Today, there is an inexpensive program, MSMoneyQuotes, that can feed stock quotes into Money.

    Many of us use something called PocketSense that can access servers for various financial institutions from your computers to bring in transactions and some other info. That one is free.
