We are running a Windows Server 2000 Terminal edition with users accessing it from another site. Microsoft Access in stalled and when ever they access it it shots the CPU usage upto 100% which (i think!) is resulting in users be kicked off terminal services because it thinks there sessions are idle for to long. This has only started happing it the last few days and theres been no system changes as far as i know.
This happens for a number of reasons the most common are:
The Microsoft access is damaged
If software is boot leg ( cracked copie ) and contains a trojant virus etc
if a virus hit your computer at some time and yoru antivirus Quantined the file, ( often leaves the file infected usless and prone to crashes )
you need to reinstall this completely, also if it automatically starts you can press windows key, select run, and enter msconfig into the box.
then under startup, untick the microsoft access box, plus any other annoying things that pop up you dont like.
Also when installing did you tick the box which would say something like ( install for this user and all other users)
And when sharing the application have you also given users Read write and executable rights.
Plus how many users have you trying to access this,
if its only a hand full, perhaps installing it on their machines would be better.
