Access frontend gets hung on"calculating..." and never fully loads data

I have an Access 2007 frontend that connects to a sql server 2005 backend.  Everything's been working just fine, but now one user (XP) will open the frontend (on everyone's machine) and it'll hang up.  The status bar will stay on "calculating..." forever (well, seems like forever).  I deleted out all the linked tables and put them back in, but it even does that very, very slowly.  I even deleted the odbc connection and made a new one...same thing.  What should I look at?

Have you re-compiled and compacted the front-end DB?

Yes I have.

Hmm, ok, what happens when you try to link tables from fresh DB? Is it still slow. Sluggish SQL connections can point to all sorts of issues. The SQL server itself may be the issue. In that case, you would need to check network saturation, disk access, etc. - system resources. Also, check the event log of the SQL server itself. See anything strange?

So this is only for this one user?

So this issue follows the "User" to each workstation...?
Make sure this rogue user has all the exact same permissions as all the other users.

I did a restore on the user's workstation and it fixed the problem.  I have no idea what it was.  I don't know how to award points on this.  Both were good suggestions, but with restore fixing it I'm not sure what the problem was.

Then "your" post above is the solution...
;-)

You can accept your own solution as the answer, as this will better help other members searching here with the same issue.

Enjoy the weekend.

The answers provided did not fix the problem, but restoring it did.  It was suggested that since that fixed the issue, then it'd be better to choose my own comment as the solution.
