At least once a day, often more, I am in the middle of preparing a return and after I enter information in a field, I get the little spinning circle, and after a few seconds Lacerte shuts down involuntarily. When I get back in, usually the last 3 - 5 fields I entered are missing. What is going on?
Individual installation or Network? Desktop or laptop PC? Any chance of inadvertent keystroke / track-pad combination? New equipment or older? Any chance there is a power issue? Frayed electrical cord, bad power brick, faulty outlet, ancient power-strip?
I am using a desktop on a network. Equipment is medium age, all the other things you mentioned don't appear to be a problem. I don't think it is inadvertent keystrokes as it only happens after I have entered a field (random, not the same one) and use the enter key on my numeric keypad. Thanks for the ideas!
