How do I get the installer for Access 2007 to not run when the program is launched?
It is on a new system with Windows XP Pro.  The entire Office Suite was installed (complete install) under the administrator account.  The user that is experiencing the problem has administrative rights to her system, and the network.  I have tried uninstalling & reinstalling Office with no luck.  All applicable updates for both Windows & Office are installed with the exception of IE7.  I have several other machines identical to this one and all work fine.  All of the remaining portions of Office work fine (Word, Excel, Power Point, etc.)
Any help is appreciated. Thanks everyone!

Did she happen to keep a copy of Access 2003 around? When switching between versions - and installer runs to reconnect to the requested version.

Click the Office Button (Big Round Button at the upper Left Corner) , then click the Access Options button. Choose Resources. Then choose Run Microsoft Diagnostics.

Diagnostics were run with no difference.  All available updates installed, no conflicting applications installed.

I've given up on trying.  I reformatted, reinstalled, & now Excel & Word are screwing up but Access is fine. **SIGH**
