  5. In the left column, scroll to 17. Repair Access databases — recent responses, and then double‑click it.

  6. Click OK in the dialog that appears.  Check the Recent Database box, then click Repair Now.

  7. If prompted to select a user, choose your user name from the list and click OK.

That's it!  After the database is repaired, click OK in the confirmation window, and then exit the Tech Support Assistant.  Start WinTOTAL, and the error no longer occurs.
