This problem occurs if you were a non-admin user the first time you ran Access and you are now running a newer version of Access. If you were a non-admin user the first time you ran Access, the registry key that specifies the current version of Access is created in HKCU\Software\Classes.

The HKCU\Software\Classes key is still checked when launching Access, causing Access to attempt a repair.
Open the Registry Editor by clicking on Start, typing Regedit in the Search box, and then pressing Enter.
