Keep getting error message no SYSTEM.MDW file

Specs: Windows XP, Pentium 4 1GB
MICROSOFT ACCESS COULDN'T FIND FILE SYSTEM.MDW - whenever I try to create a new DB in Access, or pretty much try to do anything else, this appears. Have "repaired" and reinstalled MS Office.

To temporarily work around this problem, create a shortcut to Access that includes the /wrkgrp switch and path to the workgroup information file. This forces Access to always use the same workgroup information file and to ignore the registry setting. The following is an example command line that you can write in the shortcut to indicate that Access must always use the workgroup information file called C:\Secure.mdw:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Msaccess.exe" /wrkgrp "C:\Secure.mdw"
