Shared Access Database Hangs up

I have just moved all of my company's files from a snap server to a new server running Windows server 2008. There is an access database which several people use, and now it sometimes will cause access to hang upon opening or closing. Supposedly, this has never been an issue. I'm not sure it is related to the server move, but nobody complained about it until then. Also, it may be a coincidence, but all of the users who have complained are using Vista. I'm using Vista as well, but have opened it several times with no issues. The only difference is that I have SP1 installed on Vista. This is really stumping me.

it is well known fact that Vista has a few issues, and sp1 has corrected some of these issues, your problem might be one of them.

install vista sp1 on one of the troublesome PCs, and notice if the issue is resolved after the installation of sp1.

Right after I posted this, I probed the XP users to see if they had any trouble, and they said no. I then began installing SP1 on our receptionist's PC. It's still installing. I'll let you know how it works out!
