Access 2010 - VBA Editor Crashes on open.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this issue.  When I open Access 2010 with either an existing or newly created database and attempt to access the VBA Editor, the editor locks up and I am force to shut down Access.

I have reloaded MS Office 2010 twice now, rebooted my system and still having the issue.  I verified with co-workers and they are able to use the software without issues.

I am sure you know already but...

Make sure you are update with all your Windows updates before installing Office.

As soon as you install Office, make sure that Office is fully up to date as well...

I am working at a corp, have no control over the install, however, I will pass that suggestion along.  Thanks Jeff.

I am also looking at Bug issue at MS :

This would most likely be an issue with either (a) the Windows installation or (b) the Office installation or (c) both on your machine. If the exact same database behaves normally on MachineA, but misbehaves on MachineB, then there's something amiss on MachineB.

Have you tried logging in as your user account on one of your coworker's machines? Issues like this can sometimes be the result of a corrupt user profile. So if MachineA runs the database fine with User1 logged in, but it does NOT with User2 logged in, then you may have a corrupt user profile. Your IT department would need to recreate the profile for you.

If you do NOT open the VBA Editor, does the database seem to work?

You should  not accept your last comment as a solution. You should delete the question instead (and perhaps thank the VOLUNTEER Experts who tried to help - that would be the professional and courteous thing to do).

This happens occasionally.  However in consideration of those responding, you should respond to the comments posted, and let them know where the question stands right away, rather than two months down the line.

The Experts here volunteer their time to help, and that time is not well spent on questions that the original poster has no intention of continuing with.
