Quickbooks has stopped working

Have tried to open QB 2012 several times and get this:
QuickBooks has stopped working a problem caused QuickBooks to stop working correctly windows will close the program & notify you if a solution is available...
Even tried to re-install and that didn't do a thing...  
  • What release of version 12? if its not latest V12R14, Id suggest doing a quick update.
  • I had a problem with my computer.   When I downloaded and installed Windows 8 I started getting a blue screen with error 9086.   I have had this issue since February 2013.   Just recently my quickbooks refuses to open up. I cannot find my 2011 CD  to reinstall.   If I could just get it to open up I would transfer all of my data to Quicken.   I started to do that in February 2013 but other things intervened.   I hate to pay $170 for a new version of quickbooks to just open it up and transfer it to Quicken.

    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.
