I’m no Microsoft Money expert, just a keen user. As such I’m not entirely sure what you mean by investment names—are these account names?

If they are set up like accounts then you can remove them via:

  1. Tools > Settings
  2. Account settings
  3. Click the button ‘Close or Reopen Accounts
  4. Mark the accounts you’ve closed. Closed accounts don’t appear in active account lists, but Money does keep the records for your future reference.

Does that fix it for you?

Comment on Download Microsoft Money 2005 for free by Gareth J M Saunders http://blog.garethjmsaunders.co.uk/2011/11/27/download-microsoft-money-2005-for-free/comment-page-2/#comment-247758 Sat, 28 Feb 2015 11:04:49 +0000 http://blog.garethjmsaunders.co.uk/archives/2011/11/27/download-microsoft-money-2005-for-free/#comment-247758 Yeah, auto-updating stopped when Microsoft withdrew Microsoft Passport support for Money in 2007 or 2008.

I did like the fact that it could automatically connect to my bank’s online services and automatically download my latest statements. Thankfully my bank still offers manual downloads of my account data in Money format.

I don’t have any shares, and my wife has only a handful (perhaps fewer than 20) so I’ve never required that functionality.

Interesting that you say you’ve tried other applications but they don’t match the quality of Money—that’s my experience too.

Mine stopped working a couple of years back!

I have upgraded to Money 2005 and have even paid and tried other software that does not do what Microsoft Money does! I have done numerous upgrades to my computers in the last 10 years and Money still works. I treat it like Gold!

I really don’t understand why Microsoft abandoned this software. There is nothing else that serves this function and I cannot imagine how I would run my life without it.
It is the main reason that I don’t dare change to an Apple computer.
Fingers crossed it will run with Windows 10.

For info, I had been using the UK QFE2 version fine but have just tried out the US sunset edition as there were a couple of issues I was having with error messages and it seems to work OK. The US sunset edition imported my UK money file that I had been using in QFE2 fine and all the info seems to be correct including bills, budget etc.
