What to do when QuickBooks freezes?

Hi, I close my QuickBooks 2-3 times a day as and when I walk away from my desk for a long duration for obvious reasons. This always works fine but for about a week or so my QuickBooks takes long to open up. This problem has a new face now “QuickBooks Freezes” while opening it. It opens fine 2-3 times out of ten and randomly freezes doing different stuff. I took a note every time the freeing issue in QuickBooks occurred and also sharing that too.

  1. QuickBooks freezes when opening.
  2. QuickBooks freezes after login.
  3. QuickBooks freezes when printing.
  4. QuickBooks freezes when sending emails.
  5. QuickBooks freezes when opening the company file.

These are the actions where QuickBooks stops responding as I recall. I can’t afford to lose the unsaved information when QuickBooks Freezes in the middle of something. I did some tweaks, but the issue stands equally tall as before. Can some help me to get rid of QuickBooks freezing issues?
