10 Tips to Protect Your Business from Ransomware

Did you know that ransomware is the most widespread, destructive malware in the world today? It accounts for 39% of all security breaches, with ransomware gangsters projected to make $11.5B in profits from online extortion by 2019.

If you add this as the Target of your desktop shortcut, then you'd just doubleclick the shortcut to run. Access should open, churn a little while, then your db should open. After you do this, then immediately compact and repair, then do a Compile from the VB Edit window, then C&R again.

Note that you can also do this in a batch file:

@Echo Off
"full path to msaccess.exe" "full path to your database" /decompile

Now you can run this from a command line, from the Shell method in VBA, etc etc

From my computer:

Start/Run...

and then enter

"full path to msaccess.exe" "full path to your database" /decompile


Would do too?
