Access 97 SP2

When user starts Access, he gets an error: "Microsoft Access could not find file C:\windows\system32\system.mdw. This file is required for startup". File is in the location specified. Re-installing Office did not help.

Have you tried creating a new mdw with the Wrkgadm.exe? Also, is there more than 1 version of Access installed on this pc?
