I never appreciated receiving unrequested marketing. Recently I noticed Bank of America’s logo appearing on my Quicken splash screen.
Thanks to this Quicken forum I was able to figure out how to remove it.
Then I found this splash screen referenced in the init file
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Intuit\Quicken\Config\QUICKEN.INI in the
Splash entry of the
I changed the
Splash entry to be
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Intuit\Quicken\Sku\Premier\Custom\splash.bmp. Fortunately that did the trick.
Overall I am quite happy with Quicken Premier 2007 which I got for free from a friend who works at Intuit. It has a nicer interface than Quicken Deluxe 2005, which I also got for free from another Intuit friend, and it allows me to download in the one step update from my Washington Mutual, ING Direct and Bank of America accounts. Previously I could only use web connect to download these transactions into Quicken. My life just got that much easier. 🙂
Update 02-06-2010: Another Intuit friend gave me Quicken Premier 2010. It’s great but today I noticed an unappreciated Chase logo on my Quicken splash screen. Fortunately these instructions were just as useful for removing the bank logo from Quicken 2010. 🙂
