Access 97 & Win2000 - CPU pegged at 100%

By dfloyd ·
I am running Win2000 and when I open Access 97 the CPU jumps to 100%. The msaccess.exe process takes all available CPU time for some reason. It happens on Win2000 Server and Pro. I open the Task Manager and sort by CPU so I can monitor the msaccess.exe process. When I then open Access the process pegs the processor. If I open a menu box like Tools or File Open, the process reverts back to using very little CPU. When I close the menu/dialog box, the process jumps back to the top.
I haveinstalled Win2000 SP1, Office 97 SP1&2, and ran the Win2000 Compatibility script which is supposed to fix issues with Access97.
I have tried changing settings in Tools/Option but to no avail. I would appreciate any help.

Just wanting to know, which speed CPU are you running? any other TSR's running? what kind of baseline do you have?? How much memory?
