How to make Access database an independent software

I have databases that we have created using access and I am having problem sharing this database because not all of our computers have ACCESS.  How can I make this software independent? And the other question is how can I put this on the website?
Thank you for you your input on this.

You have to have access on your machine to run an access app. You can't make any access app independent software. The most you can make a mde file. You can create a data access page for web

You can install the Microsoft Access Runtime (free and redistributable) on machines that do not have a full version of Access on them.  This will enable you to run the app on those machines, but you will not be able to do any design work from those machines (no table, query, form, report, VBA, or macro design changes).

Here is the download link for the runtime, including other info:

That shouldn't be an issue.  With the runtime, your front-end can still attach to the backend.

I'm having problem with the back-end and front-end scheme, it's just very slow but once I put it back without using front-end back-end is working fine.  Is there anything I could do about it?

TWBitCommented:
There can be many factors affecting the performance of the backend, such as the size of the backend, network speed, number of users, utilization of the server that the back-end sits on, etc, let alone programming methods that may be inefficient.  It's hard to pinpoint it exactly.  How slow is slow?

Well the front end and the back end is in the same computer.  And it goes really slow accessing anything.
