Problem with opening multiple .mdbs at same time

    Situation: On some of the workstations on our network, the user is unable to
    open more than one Access database at a time. When they attempt to open the
    second, the window for the first becomes active, hangs for a few seconds and
    then a second blank Access window opens, but never connects to the database,
    the first is also locked up. In Task Manager, both are shown as 'Not
    Responding'. On other workstations, the user can open several .mdbs with no
    trouble.
    I have checked everything I could think of on the workstations and they
    appear to be configured the same.
    I found one post about 'Name AutoCorrect', but this is not set in any of the
    databases.
    If I open Access directly from the Start Menu, I can then open the second
    database.
    I found that if I turn off DDE under Windows Explorer>Tools>Folder
    Options>File Type>Advanced that I can open multiple databases OK. I am
    worried about this work-around since it does not answer why it is working on
    some workstations with DDE turned on.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
