    I have a problem with my MS Access 2000. When I try to open it, it says it can't find a file (msjet40.dll). I can search the hard drive and the file is there - in the C:/Windows/System folder, I believe that is the correct place. I tried to repair and also have uninstalled and reinstalled Office 2000. On both the repair and the reinstall, I get numerous error messages on .dlls that did not register - all pertaining to OLE or ODBC files. The final result of both is the same - the same access error message described in the first line. The operating system is Win98SE. All other Office products open fine. Could this be a virus? Does anyone have suggestions on how to fix the problem?

    It happens on any of the apps I try to open. It was working fine as recent as last week.

    Drivers do become corrupt. Try and install the MDAC component. Reinstalling the apss will install the older versions and if there were any serviec releases applied you need to re-apply them as well.
