    This is really annoying. I haven't used access in a while, but I have office 2007 and have have to use Access '07 for one of my classes.

    Now, when I first started it up, it said it needed to configure MS Office Ultimate 2007 before usage (which is weird, because I've used it before, but whatever). It started up. It works fine, except for when I try to view a table in datasheet form. The windows installer won't leave me alone, trying to configure Office Professional 2003 (what I have alongside Ultimate 2007). I have to beat it down with a stick, hitting cancel until it stops long enough for me to try to access another table, where it starts up again. If I let it go on, it'll say sku1e3 hasn't been found. I got Office Ultimate through one of those $60 for college student deals way back, which might be why it can't seem to find the files it needs on the CDs I used to install it. Maybe it needs a specific directory. I don't know. I do know this is aggravating.

    I'm sorry if this is a newbie question, but I really need help with this. I can get my work done, but dealing with this hassle will triple the time.

    I'm on Windows XP w/Service Pack 3.

    Hey Axeman,

    I am working w/ two different versions of Access also (2003 and 2007). As I know of there is no way around the configuration/installation process that starts when you open an access document/database in either especially if you use one version more than the other.

    I am also looking forward to the answer to this question b/c my IT guys at work keep telling me "that's just what it does". I'm not sure to take that at face value or to mean that they don't know how to fix it. :-\

    Best,
    Zhouma

    I suggest you read this thread thoroughly without taking action and deciding if this solves the issue one way or another.

    I have asked the mods if they shouldn't move this thread to the Malware Removal & Hijack This Logs, as this is a pretty complex thing to put right and requires the dedicated team to get involved IMHO. As yet that hasn't happened.

    I don't think this is a malware related issue.

    No, I don't but it seems to be a common problem.
