Find and Replace dialog won't appear when pressing <CTRL>-<F>

This one computer that I've developed a cool Access 2003 database will not display the find/replace dialog box when I press <CTRL>-<F> in one of my continous forms.  Is that usually a windows 2000 install problem?

That is the thing - dmitryz6

I can go on my computer and do a <CTRL>-<F> and pull up the Find / Dialog box.

But when I go on his it refuses to come up.
Also when you click on an icon - it just comes up with Open.

Could that be a virus or corruption of the Office environment?

If it for all Icons, look like windows problem.
