Install/Uninstall QuickBooks Desktop in Selective Startup

It is possible that third-party applications like Anti-Virus, Anti-Malware or Anti-Spyware interfere with the installation process of QuickBooks on your desktop. You would not be able to install QuickBooks unless and until you stop these third-party applications. In that case, it becomes imperative that you install QuickBooks on your desktop in selective startup mode. We can use this mode to limit the number of applications that run in the background. This will not only eliminate the possibility of an issue arising while installing QuickBooks but also increase the speed of execution of files for your desktop.

QuickBooks uses a Microsoft component known as Microsoft Windows Installer which needs Windows Installer Service to be active to work properly. Since we will be running the computer in safe mode, we won’t need to troubleshoot any potential third-party installation conflicts.
