Old VB6 Program with old Access doesn't display data on the grids for Windows 10

Old VB6 Program with old Access doesn't display data on the grids for Windows 10 on one computer.  Same program and Access Databases show data in the grids for all Windows 10 computers except for this one computer.

Any thoughts on what could be causing this?  Virus Software, Windows 10 Security, Corrupted Dll?

Check 1st antivirus and antimalware.
Then uninstall and reinstall VB6.
That's all I can figure out for now.

Try this to check if there's something related in the event viewer that can be helpful to solve this issue

Hi Jose,

The VB6 program is an executable with an installation.  Not the actual VB6 Development Studio.  I'm not sure I was clear.

Usually something like this assosiates with graphics card problem...how about updating your drivers and also check if GPU acceleration is enabled...
Please take two computers, one where it works and one where not and compare the scaling settings and adjust them on the non-working one:
-> go to the paragraph starting with "CHANGE DPI SCALING LEVEL FOR DISPLAYS IN SETTINGS APP"
Gustav BrockCIOCommented:
If the computers are different, it is most likely an issue of the graphic adapter and/or driver.

If they are identical, check the settings for Visual Effects:

 - This Computer, right-click Properties
 - Advanced Settings (left, bottom)
 - Tab Advanced, Performance Settings (top button)
 - Select a fixed setting, or compare/adjust the long list user defined settings
