99% CPU Usage...but for real this time...

P: n/a
I've Googled the threads about high CPU usage, but they do not seem to
apply.

In this case, MS Access really is taking over the CPU. You try to
drag a window across Access's turf and nothing get redrawn....Plus, of
course, not much else can be done on the machine.

TaskMan confirms.

All I'm doing is trying to close an app/DB that was working on.

It's been clocking for about 20 minutes now...so I guess I'll bite the
bullet and kill MS Access.
Anybody had similar experiences?
I did last week - different DB, same PC...which makes me wonder....

Have you installed all the appropriate service packs? I seem to recall
one fixed this one though I don't recall which...

This is a problem in A97 and previous.

ACC: Microsoft Access Shows 100% CPU Utilization During Idle Time
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=160819

But AFAIK this was solved in A2000 and newer. Do you have an infinite loop running?
Did you try Ctrl+Break?

Echo off, and code in endless loop?

Conditional formatting endless loop?

Some event triggering an event that retriggers the first?

Are the "Name Auto Correct" options on, these can cause large delays at db closing
