How to repair a crash problem in Access 2010 SP1

When starting Summit the message "Microsoft Access has stopped working" is displayed and the Microsoft Access shuts down. This is a bug that was introduced in Microsoft Office 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1).

This error can be quickly overcome by reinstalling the latest Summit update, but it can reoccur. Microsoft has released a more permanent fix for this problem.

The fix can be found at the Microsoft website here.

The download required is the 32-bit version, not the 64-bit version. To reinstall the latest Summit update click here.
