Access Hanging

I have a problem on an XP Pro machine, it's fully patched , clean of Virus's and in all other respects works ok. The problem is on Access 2000 SP4 . When I open a database all is fine , but the minute I open a table the program hangs in a massive way and generates the following error in the event log

"Source : Application Hang"
Category : (101)
Event ID : 1002
Type: Error
Description: Hanging Application MSACCES.EXE Version, hang module hungapp , version hang address0x00000000.

I've re service packed Office , un installed and re-installed Access, all to no avail. Will it be neccessary to re-install the whole Office Suite?

I'm getting in  the neck from the user involved , so a solution will be very welcome, hence the points.

One last point, the Databases are on the machine itself, and when I run the on my laptop they work perfectly.

Many thanks

What is Access SP4?

There is no public SP4 release for Access.

Has the problem just appeared and was it working previously? You could try using the windows restorer and rolling back to the previous SR of access.

Also, what SR is the lap top version of access?
