Have a look at this Intuit Article. It appears to cover your situation.

"If the user who requires access is listed, verify that the name listed in the Domain column is the domain name used when the user logs on to this computer. If they only use this local workstation, it should be the name of the computer.
If the local computer name is used, then the user can log on to the workstation only. If the user needs to be able to access the network and use QuickBooks as well, or if you need to add this user, follow these steps:
Within the Users and Passwords window, click the Users tab, and then click the Add button.
In the Add New User window, enter the User name and Domain. (This should be the user name and domain that the user enters to log on to the network.)
Click Standard user (Power Users Group).
Click Finish. "
1 - There is no domain column that I'm aware of.
2 - Where do I find the name of my computer?
3 - If I try to create a new user, my only option is to give the user a name and set whether it has 'limited' or 'administrative' rights - there is no 'domain' area

'Determine if you are part of a workgroup or a domain:
Click the Microsoft® Windows® Start button, choose Settings, and then choose Control Panel.
Double-click System and click the Computer Name tab.
Directly under the Full computer name, your domain or workgroup name will display.
If you are part of a workgroup, please skip to step 2.
If you are part of a domain, please follow the instructions for setting domain user rights.
Double-click User Accounts and then double-click the name under User Name that needs Administrator rights.
Click Change the account type, select the type of account you want, and then click Change Account Type. '
I guess that I am part of a workgroup only in that I have a notebook that I transfer files back and forth onto the PC. I went to 'Step 2', but (again) I'm the only user and I already have administrator status. Then I thought "what-the-heck" why not change my user name to the name of the computer (HOME). I did this, logged out and then back in - tried to access Quick Books - same problem

I will post back as soon as I get this figured out. With XP Pro, it would be easy....Home doesn't have the features to do it through the user interface.

Boot to Safe Mode by tapping the F8 key during the boot sequence. If you receive a Boot Order window, press "Esc" to close it. At the Safe Mode Options screen, use the arrow keys to select "Safe Mode" and press "Enter".
Once in Safe Mode, Navigate to C:\ProgramFiles and right click on "Intuit"...select "Properties". Click on the "Security" tab.
For each entry in the "Group or user names" box, select "Allow" for all entries in the "Permissions for Administrators" box.
Click "Apply" then "Ok".
Reboot into Normal Mode and try to open Quick Books.

In researching this, I ran into a kazillion people with the same issues using XP Home. One would think that Intuit would address this issue with their software and make it a little less proprietory.
