access trouble

P: 1
hello friends,

I cannot get my access to open on my computer. It just acts as if it is installing and configuring and the screen looks like it refreshes but access never opens up. Has anyone ever had this problem? I hadd to do access homework at school instead of doing it at home. Help...

Thank you,
cm

In this order:

1. check for trojans and viruses using a good anti-virus with uptodate definitions.
2. check for additional service packs for your version of MS Office/Access.
3. explore MS online resources for hotfixes, etc.
4. completely uninstall & reinstall MS Office.

Sounds like your installation of Office has become corrupted and/or is missing some vital pieces of software. Find the reason for the corruption first (step 1), then fix the problem (steps 2 through 4)

Just to clarify, do these steps in order until one of them fixes the problem! No need to do all 4 if, for example, step 2 fixes it.
