Quicken mutual fund quotes not updating

When I first went through my financial meltdown, I tried both packages for a short time, first trying out Money via Microsoft’s free trial of the product, then trying out Quicken using a free copy that came with my computer.Another nit that bothered me was the regular bombardment with what amounted to ads.I was constantly being introduced to mutual funds and other financial products that “matched my financial picture.” I’m really not interested in being served up ads by a program that I paid for (or, in Money’s case, was using on a trial basis to decide if I wanted to pay for it).I did not feel that one package had a huge advantage over the other – in fact, they felt pretty similar to me. I sat down and thought about the time I was spending entering information into the program, appropriately categorizing all of my spending, and looking at reports, and I realized two things. Sure, I could see areas where I was spending a lot, but almost always my own mental accounting told me where I was spending too much.I liked Microsoft’s data views somewhat better, but I had more difficulty connecting to my accounts with Money – but, honestly, they both did the job just fine. I also had a great picture of my month-in month-out money flow, but it was a of work to get this picture.
