    Adobe Photoshop Starter Edition 3.0 - problem opening My Catalog

    Level 1
      Have installed and uninstalled Adobe Starter Edition 3 numerous times. Each time I get the following message:

      There was a problem opening the catalog 'My Catalog'

      Another user or application may have the catalogue open, or one or more files may be missing,out of date or damaged.

      The ODBC data source returned the following error:

      "[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver]Invalid connection string attribute"

      Attempt to compact and recover this catalog and then open again?

      If I then click OK it says

      A problem was encountered during catalog recovery. Your catalogue may be OK but if you experience problems with it that can't be resolved through the Recover Catalog option or restarting your system you may need to restore this catalog from a backup.

      When I click OK - only option offered:

      Unable to open catalog called 'My Catalog' because the file is damaged.
      Please select an action to perform:

      * open an existing catalog

      * create a new catalog called My Catalogue-1.psa

      If I do the first it goes back to square 1 above. If I do the second the same.

      Every time I have uninstalled I have then done a search for all files using name My Catalog and deleted those.

      Am running on XP fully up to date.

      HELP!!!
