I have a DB in MS Access 2007, the size is about 112mb.  This DB is necessary for an application we have to run.  The application is developed in .NET. The PC is 2gb Ram, Vista.

The problem is that after a while, maybe 4 to 7 hours, the application get very sluggish and slow.  The application is opened in the morning, worked with the database (access) all day  and all ok, but after some hours, it just get super slow.  Sometime I exit from the application and comes back on, and it works it again.  


1. What maintenance tasks is recommended for this database?

2. Beside the maintenance (if not the database), how can I determine if its Access, .NET or the PC

please advice.
