    Unanswered: UNable to open any table. please help me

    i have installed Microsoft SQL server 2000(evaluated version). I opened enterprise manager.and opened one of the default database.(Northwind).I clikced on the tables in the Northwind. On the right side of the console I right-clicked on one of the table and tried to open table--> Return all rows.. I am getting a message saying that "Provider cannot be found. It may not be properly installed".
    I tried to reinstall the sql server evaluated version. I installed it 3 to 4 times restarting my computer. But still its giving me the same problem.
    I am using Windows Xp OS. Do I need to take care of anything before installation. I even removed Office XP from my system thinking if that has anything to do with the installation. Please let me know as soon as possible.
    One last question, is this a very rare problem or is the problem only with me. Because I couldnt find a solution as nobody is giving me a reply.

    Can you not open QA?

    What's your security model?

    The physical order of data in a database has no meaning.

    Check whether sqloledb.dll is registered or not.
