MS Access immediately re-launches after close

I have an MS Access application used by 10 people on our network. Just 1 of these machines has a problem that when I close the application, I see the desktop briefly then a second later MS Access immediately re-launches into a blank window. I can open other databases subsequently, but Access will re open every time I close it.

I can close it using Task Manager. It then reopens and can be closed normally

So you mean that ACCESS opens, or that a Database opens (that is, Access opens and then a Database opens)?

Have you insured that the machine is fully up to date in regard to service packs, for both Office/Access and Windows? Given that it's just one machine, I would think a faulty or corrupt install would be a likely culprit.

No a database doesn't open. I just get a blank screen where I can subsequently open a database. But any attempt to close Access  causes it to reopen again to a blank screen.

Windows is up to date. Not sure about Access though. I'm not in the office until Thursday, i'll check it out then.

Also might check to insure that your user profile is okay - log into the machine as a different user and see if the issue continues. If it works fine with the other login, then you may have a corrupt user profile.

I uninstalled Access and reinstalled. The problem still persisted. I logged on as a different User and didn't see the problem. So the problem must be related to the profile. I would prefer not to delete the profile and re-create it. Is there anything I can do to fix the profile?

I don't know of any method to recover a corrupted profile. You can copy the settings and such to a new profile, however:

OK. Thank you for your help. I never would have suspected the user profile. Strange though, it only happens with this one database, and if I make a .ACCDE from that database, I can open  and close it without seeing this issue.
