My PC is locking up frequently while developing an Access database for a charity. The locking generally occurs when trying to save a modified form or query, or when switching views between design and open. The problem seems to have started when I replaced our printer, HP Deskjet 845c for HP Deskjet F4180. The printer is connected to my wife’s PC and we have an Ethernet link via a router.
I have tried running a full virus scan with our installed AVG (no alerts), cleaning up the hard drive with CCleaner, running Ad-Aware and also defragmenting the hard drive. The Access database is compacted very regularly.
