Although Intuit indicated that the R7 & R8 releases for QuickBooks 2013 “intended to deal with several ‘encryption/decryption’ errors that have plagued QuickBooks in recent versions, especially as they relate to credit-card numbers”, there continue to be problems with these errors.
Do NOT run a rebuild if you encounter one of these errors as stated in the Intuit KBA (SLN71415) saying: “IMPORTANT: If you receive this message with QuickBooks opened or the error displays in the Qbwin.log, do not rebuild because this will not fix the issue and can cause additional problems…”
