    I had to do a complete reload of Windows XP as well as MS Office 2003. Now
    when I go to open my Access files, I get an error message "...Form.mdb is not
    a valid Win32 Application."

    I am only able to open my Access files by opening Access first and using the
    File, Open, file name path.

    Any suggestions?

    It sounds like the Access was not properly reloaded. In any case, you
    should be able to do a right click on a mdb file and chose the "Open with"
    option. I believe somewhere along the line it offers you the option to make
    this choice the default. That should do it.
