I just realised I could reply to this. I had started a general "thanks" thread on the Q&A page.

I found the removal tools didn't work, but I was able to remove the update manually, which fixed the problem with no restart.

I am sure I would never have solved this without having seen this blog, so it has saved a stack of wasted time.

This is creating quite a mess for our customers. The phone has been ringing off the hook.

Here's my blog post that describes the cause, symptoms, and how to uninstall the Office update that's causing this mess. The update causes Access wizards to fail (Linked Table Manager, picture wizard, Documenter, Analyzer, etc.), users' ACCDE and MDE databases, and databases (ACCDB and MDB) databases that reference them. Of course all our commercial Microsoft Access 2010 add-ins that are ACCDE's are failing (e.g. Total Access Analyzer, Total Access Detective, Total Access Emailer, etc.).

The Excel team updated the VBA7.DLL file and didn't set the binary backward compatibility properly.

Here's a detailed explanation with illustrated instructions on uninstalling the Office update: http://blog.fmsinc.com/microsoft-update-kb...bases-to-crash/

Hope this helps.
