I think the title says it all... I'm getting this error in WinNT, could it be NTFS? I have SP3 installed.
MS Access didn't start either, exited with the same error message. There has got to be a solution to this! Anyone??

snoffy, most likely it is the NTFS. I have had many problems using DB applications with NTFS. They were solved using FAT.

Do you have any data suited on the network (DB or installation files)?

Thanks. Now I can stop wondering... damn, 'format c:' again =(

...cause it's not possible to convert NTFS to FAT huh? Just the other way around.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Yep, switched back to win95 =( and now it works as usual. But I don't have the guts to install IE4... it has already crashed win95 twice!
