I have this silly problem has been doing my head in sometimes.

I have MSoffice installed on my C:\ drive, and I use Access databases everyday, and they are installed on H:\My Documents\Access, and thats where they have been for the last couple of years , and have used them with no problems. The fact I have a SSD drive made them pretty quick when opening or swapping views etc

Last weekend I had to reinstall my Win7 64 bit from scratch due to lockups and couldn't access anything.

So a brand new install, and now Access thinks the databases are on a network, and every now and again when I click to open one, it seems to go in to no response mode for a few minutes and then will open up. And its the same sometimes when I click the save icon, and other times it tells me that the network was interrupted and I cant save at this time, so I have to close the database and start again, hoping it will save.

I have scanned my C: drive for malware, virus with 3 or 4 different programs and nothing was found.

I don't use Access directly. There should be a "Detect and Repair" utility in Help. I don't know what that does. I gather from googling that after 2007 version, you have to run that via code. Description here.

You could try setting the default folder in Options/General if you have not done so.

Are your drive letters the same as before?

Try opening an mdb via right-click and "Open With" to see what the default is.

Check the "Open" properties for mdb in Folder Options/File Types?

Thanks for the reply, and I did as was suggested which did help some, but not completely.

I guess I'll just have to live with it now.
