How do I remove security from ACCESS

I have an old ACCESS database which had security applied and the password is unknown.  I have removed and reloaded Office with no luck.  I know there has to be some type of ini file which holds this user password info.  And I assume that if I remove said file I can open my databases.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  In the past I could get past this issue by linking from another PC running ACCESS but that option is no longer available so I need to remove the security restrictions.  Can't open any ACCESS databases with current security restrictions.  Time is of the essence.

Thanks for the quick response.  I was able to delete the .mdw file and repair to fix my problem, but your answer is the best way to do it.  Thanks again for the info which will be extremely useful.
