I converted a database from 2003 to 2010 and I get this error. I cannot even open a new blank database and I get the same message.

It seems that you have protected your database by a worgroup security permission. You need to remove such permissions by menu Tools-Securety permissions or to add your name to the allowed users.
Access stores securety permission in a file named System.mdw. Perhaps you have not converted such file to access 2010.
It even could be that you have a registry key that points to a wrong or not existing security file.
Try to check which file is written in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Access\Access Connectivity Engine\Engines
