How Access 97 grabs 100% of the CPU time and wont let got for 15-20 seconds, after which it releases the cpu cycles only to grab them all again after a few seconds. this really bogs you down while trying to preform other functions.
While opening Access 97 does nothing to the clock cycles, opening any .mdb file is when the clock cycles are grabbed and held. This happens with a new, blank database file as well as an existing one.
A resolution of "dont leave Access open" is unacceptable. This does not happen with win 95/98/NT 4.0. I have not seen it on Win ME so i cannot comment on this.
