I'm not a multi user of QB. I'm running QB Pro 2017 on Windows 10 and would like to uninstall intuit network database manager.

I have tried the following steps per Intuit's suggestion, but the "Intuit Network Database Manager" does NOT come up in the list of programs to uninstall. How do I uninstall this process and stop it from running in the background?

  1. Open Programs and Features to uninstall software.
    1. On the keyboard, press the Windows logo + R. The Run dialog box opens.
    2. Enter appwiz.cpl then click OK. The Program and Features window opens.
  2. Click on QuickBooks Database Server Manager.
  3. Select Uninstall/Change at the top of the window.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to Uninstall/Remove the program.

The steps above did not work for me


Hi, karaptian,

I appreciate your time in trying to fix this. Helping out with removing Intuit Database Manager is my top priority.

Database managers are used to managing local and remote databases. They discover databases based on the Web server and provide the ability to connect to any of the databases residing in the network.

That's the reason you're unable to remove the program since this isn't just a program that you can just uninstall and reinstall. Try to follow these steps:
  1. Click Windows icon
  2. Open CMD and run it as admin
  3. Type
  4. SC DELETE QuickbooksDB27
If it still doesn't work, I suggest contacting our Technical Support Team to help you with this:
  1. Go to: https://help.quickbooks.intuit.com/en_US/contact.
  2. Choose QuickBooks Desktop.
  3. Select your QuickBooks version.
  4. On the Contact Us page, click a topic.
  5. Click on the Get Phone Number button to see the support number.
Don't hesitate to leave a comment if you need anything else.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
