Batch of PCs create errors in MS Access

Hi, we've got a batch of 5 PCs at work that consistently generate errors when using our MS Access database. These 5 PCs are identical and were purchased in a batch, all have decent specs (using XP Pro o/s) and use our MS Office 2007 Pro saved on our server, so the same software that all other PCs are using without problem.
Errors include not recognising the expression Date() (even once this has been 'fixed' from within the library, the problem recurs) and 'error' coming up on the opening screen instead of a message displaying a result from a query.
We've tried completely reformatting one of them but the problems persist. Has anyone got any idea what could be causing this?
Thank you

A hard question!

However, there is an Access expert forum (free) at click here I know it is bad form to recommend another forum; but some of the skills in there... wow!
