Access messes up my system Please Help

Even when I exit access it does not exit completely, if i press ctrl-alt-
del then i see "msacces" running. sometimes multiple copies. it is so bad
that i get errors "not enough memory" so i cant run any progrmas. What can
I do? i have win98 with msaccess 2000

If you're doing any kind of serious development using Windows then I would
advise upgrading your OS to something more solid.
Before doing anything so drastic though you should assess your system.
Do you have sufficient memory and disk space for the OS and applications you
are running?
Have you checked your system for viruses?
Is your OS fully patched with all available updates and security fixes?
Have you visited www.microsoft.com and searched the Knowledge Base? I think
someone has a problem with 'ghost' copies of Access a while back in this ng
so you might try Googling for that.

This was a reported bug in Access that caused this problem. One of
the cures was to change any VBA code that uses a CheckBox from this

If chkComplete Then ...

to this

If chkComplete = True Then ...

There may be other things that cause Access to "not completely close"
see the MS Knowledge base:

http://support.microsoft.com/default...;EN-US;KBHOWTO

for more info.
