I went to a customers site and copied a MDB file and a MDW file to my stick and brought them here. When I attempt to open the MDB in Access 2007, I receive You do not have the necessary permissions to use the 'c:\desktop\file.mdb' object. Have your system administrator or the person who created this object establish the appropriate permissions for you. Is there anyway I can get this thing open?

You need to open it from a command line that includes the MDW file.
Create a shortcut then wdit the shortcut's target to included the /wrkgrp switch. See here for more details: about MDB Viewer Tool
