Default Can't reinstall Access database

My laptop became infected with a virus requiring me to wipe the hard drive clean and start over. I am using Windows XP Pro installed from discs. Before reinstallation all of the programs worked fine. Now they all work except Access. It shows on the program list but will not open. I have uninstalled office twice and reinstalled with no success. Can anyone help me?

Thanks.

Do the event logs show any error when you try and launch Access?

I just tried to relaunch Access again and then checked the event log. This is what came up :

I believe that is from McAfee. Try turning off McAfee or maybe ininstall it until you get things working.

Thanks for getting back RG

I tried turning off all of the McAfee components, uninstalling Offic and reinstall office. The results are the same, nothing has changed. Boy is this frustrating.

Just to kibbutz, MBackMonitor probably did not launch when you clicked the Access icon.

Can you check the properties of the Icon and see if it is pointing to an Access application file?

Also, go to your version of Office in Program Files, and click on Access.exe, and see what happens then.

I am thinking perhaps you uninstalled Office with Access, and then installed Office without it, but the icon or menu shortcut remains.

Did any of that help?
