I have a few co workers that use MS Access 2003 to input and delete inventory from a small database. I notices that it freezes up and says calculating when trying to delete an entry and will resume the second you press ctrl-alt-delete. If you leave Task manager open and just minimize, Access runs fine and never freezes up when tryin to delete and entry. I'm tryin to figure out why its stable with Task Manager open.

I looked and noticed that the particular user that was having problems didn't have Office 2003 Service pack 3 applied. So i downloaded and installed it and it fixed the problem.
