Access Application  Unexpected error 429

I have Office 97 and Office 2000 installed on the same machine. I have an older application that requires Access 97 to run. It would be prohibitively expensive to update so I keep Access 97 around. The versions of office have co-existed peacefully for years until recently. I let Microsoft's Office update check out my installation to determine the updates that I required. I failed to notice that the update also had the update for Office XP checked. Of course I could not supply the Installation CD for Office XP when requested so I bailed out of the update. Ever since I get the following error.

An unexpected error 429
ActiveX component can't create object

I've uninstalled and re-installed Office 97. Both Access 97 and Access 2000 work when opened, Only when I use the application do I get this error.

What can I do? It would take days to rebuild my machine if I even had the time to do it.

After installing make sure the SR's are applied:
