Intuit QuickBooks Recovery After Virus Infection

QuickBooks is a widely used and advanced accounting software for home users as well as small and medium sized businesses. It is designed and marketed by Intuit Inc. The software has various international versions, for UK, USA, Canada, Ireland, Singapore, Australia, and New Zealand. This accounting software stores all your company information, customer information, employee information, items & services, and chart of accounts in a database with .QBW file extension. Under some circumstances, this database file may get damaged due to virus attack and become totally inaccessible. This behavior leads to severe data loss and require Intuit QuickBooks recovery to be sorted out.

When a QBW file gets damaged, QuickBooks application cannot recognize the file or read header of the file and thus it cannot be accessed. Corruption is an unexpected situation, which leads to severe data loss and virus infection is one of the major reasons of QuickBooks database corruption. When a QuickBooks database file corrupts, it behaves very strangely and may encounter the below error messages:

“Error C=342," "RPC Server is unavailable,” or “QBCenters could not find a critical file” Run a full dscan with your anti-virus program, after updating it.

Balance sheet out of balance
Error 224: QB tried to read an invalid split line for a transaction or memorized transaction. The data file may be damaged or QB may be confused. Delete the first split transaction error, in the QBWIN.LOG file.

The above errors generally occur when you try to open corrupt QuickBooks file or try to extract certain information from QuickBooks database. The problem occurs every time you try to perform some specific operations on the database.

Viruses generally affect the header of QuickBooks database, which contains all the information about the QBW file and makes it inaccessible. In order to work around such situations, you should scan the database using advanced and updated anti-virus software. The software helps you to remove viruses from the database. However, it cannot repair the damage.

To repair and restore corrupt QBW file, Intuit recovery is required. You can easily recover damaged database with the help of advanced and powerful third-party Intuit repair software. They offer easy and safe recovery in all corruption scenarios. The applications use high-end scanning algorithms to ensure absolute recovery.
