    Corrupted database (access 2003)

    IMPORTANT
    While doing some research on this site for mail merge automation I came upon several sample databases. One of which I downloaded and opened i beleive has corrupted the program.
    Any database that I open, whether it be new or old no contains 5 additional tables; msysstorage, msysstorage, msysobjects, msysqueries, msysrelationships.
    I am denied permission to change or delete these tables(no "delete data permission") The table icons in the database window are grayed.

    I have tried repairing, uninstalling and reinstalling access and office 2003 with the same outcome. The program otherwise seems to be working satisfactorily, though slow on opening. I can attach a new database with these issues but I thought that I would wait to see if this was a good idea or not.
    Any ideas??

    It may have been as simple as hiding the system objects in the view option tab. I had never seen this presentation before-how it changed I do not know. If I was overly alarmed about the possible corruption I apologize-Thanks

    It looks like one of the databases you downloaded had some code that changed some of the Access view options.

    Those tables are always present, but usually hidden.
