Not really sure of exactly what you're saying, as Access databases don't have "exe" files. But try this:

Press and hold down the <Shift> key, and while holding it down, open your database. Don't release <Shift> until the database has completely loaded. Hopefully you'll see the database window, listing tables. forms, etc. Now on the menu goto Tools - Startup and tick all checkboxes.

Exit Access, and try opening the database in the normal fashion.
