Error: Query cannot be executed because some files are either missing or not registered.

When I select a table to query I receive the error " The query cannot be executed because some files are either missing or not registered. Run setup again to make sure the required files are registered." I am running XP Pro on the desktop. This is the path that I select: Enterprise Manager - SQL server to attach to - select the database - select the table - select to query all rows.  The odd thing about this is that it was working fine on Friday & on Monday it doesn't work. I have uninstalled & reinstalled the MDAC. Did not correct the problem.
Please help!

Thanks.

Hope this isn't too painful, but if you have a restore point prior to flameout, you can use the system restore app in XP to bring your system back to where it was.  You'll lose any programs you've installed since then, but if your restore point isn't too far back, it won't be too bad.

Thanks for the info. the restore didn't work for some reason. We used the xp disk to restore the system files & didn't lose any programs. It worked out great & it corrected the problem. Thanks.
