Could not find MysysDb - corrupt database

I have a clients whose database is an mdb with the shift key disabled.  It is not split, is only on one computer and they have had a power surge.  This has (I think) corrupted the database.  They had also not done a back up for a week and I would love to try and recover some of the data.  However I cannot decompile or import the files into a blank database - I just get the mysysdb message.  Any suggestions please.
