Repair Microsoft Access .mdb database that won't open after abnormal shutdown and is not responding to standard Repair tools

Job Description:

After an abnormal shutdown on Thursday, the Roadnet software on my PC would not longer open. It seems to be related to a Microsoft Access database or driver corruption. The Roadnet software itself seems to be fine, as when I pointed it to another Microsoft Access database (.mdb) it opens and works fine. However, I cannot get it to open the .mdb file from last week, which contains several current projects.

I have attached several screenshots showing how the software is typically configured. In the second shot, you can see where there are buttons to Compact and Repair the .mdb database, but they do not work. I do not have the entire Access software program loaded on my PC. However, I copied the corrupted .mdb file to another PC that does have Access installed, but when I tried to open the Tools section within the full version of Access, it would not repair my damaged .mdb file, and instead presented the error message shown in the attached file showing: Microsoft Access Driver Login Failed "unrecognized database format"

So, I believe I need to have someone help me make repairs to the .mdb database on my PC using some other tool or by trying some of the settings shown on the various screens, which I do not fully understand.

My PC has Windows 7 Enterprise, but the software application (Roadnet) and the Access .mdb database are only contained locally on my stand-alone PC, not accessing any network applications. This is likely a 5 minute fix for someone who knows what they are doing. I need to work with someone who speaks English well, and who has software to be able to dial into my PC to remotely fix the issue. I have GoToMeeting install on my PC, if that would allow you the appropriate access to my PC. I am available any day this week after work between 5pm and 9pm Eastern Time in the US, and almost all day Friday. I would prefer to work with someone who has the ability to call my cell phone to have a live discussion during the repair.

The milestone to achieve payment for the project will be if I can open up the damaged .mdb file during our call and be able to successfully retrieve the data I was working on when the application crashed on Thursday at 10pm. I will not make a payment ahead of time.
