Recommended third-party products to address database corruption?

Have any of you heard of or used any commercially
available 3rd party solution that addresses common
forms of mdb file corruption? I don't think FMS has
anything like this. Perhaps other company does?

Adding more software won't address the corruption.
Identifying and fixing the cause would be more productive.

If you want a list of things to work through, see:

It will take you some time to work though them, but it's worth the trouble.

Allen, in Access 97, is there one single setting
that will disable AutoCorrect in as many places
as it is possible for it to operate? Looking up
what I could find in HELP, it seems like I'll have
to pepper my entire application with code to
make sure AutoCorrect isn't operating anywhere.

Name AutoCorrect was introduced in Access 2000, so it is not a factor at all
in A97.

Note that this Name "AutoCorrect" option (Tools | Options | General in A2000
and later) is completely different from the spellling AutoCorrect that
applies to text boxes and combos (in the Properties box.) The spelling one
does not corrupt the database. Personally I turn that off in controls except
for comments/notes, but that's a matter of style, i.e. it is not a danger to
your database.
