When I launch Access IBM, either by double clicking the Access IBM icon or by pushing the Access IBM Button, the program is launched by stops execution. So I can't select any of the items (support, configuration, etc.)?

Go to the thinkvantage site to download the newest drivers and support applications. Go to http://www.pc.ibm.com/us/think/thinkvantagetech/downloads_support.html and start with System Update.
 
See if that helps

I have the same issue and I have seen many reports of the same problem on various forums.
 
Somebody suggested going to http://www.pc.ibm.com/us/think/thinkvantagetech/downloads_support.html, but it is not obvious what software to download.
 
It would be nice if somebody from Lenovo could advise how to reinstall the Access IBM software.

I have the same problem have reinstalled system, 3 times still no improvement.  After a clean install access ibm works in its entirety, however after all updates are installed ( i believe after ibm updates) not xp sp2 updates, ibm access seems not to function anymore as the author post explains.
 
Please lenovo provide some required support or anyone else that has been able to fix this important thinkpad issue.

Thanks all for the contribution. In fact, the problem comes from Adobe Falsh Player. You have to uninstall it completely. It seems that using the Windows XP add/remove utility can't get you rid of the program. There is a tool provided by Adobe (Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller) which removes entirely the program. After that, the Access IBM works fine. Sorry, I don't have the link to the Adobe Flash Uninstaller, but you can find useful information on the site : forums.thinkpad.com (excellent site)!
 
I would like also to add that I ran into multiple problems (multiple BSODs) after the last update from Lenovo. I spent a week trying to figure what happened and I still do not understand. Since 2 days, my computer seems stabilized. I deleted Access IBM connections and I am using exclusively the Windows XP wireless connection utility. I also verified all the drivers loaded on the system (c:\verifier from a dos window). Actually the verifier command have not reported any problem, but after running it, my computer seems working again.
 
Regards.

The "Access IBM" button uses the Hotkey Features driver. But it sounds like you're talking about Access Connections, the Thinkvantage app for managing your wireless connections. For the various drivers for the T42, go to http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-55386.html for the T42 Driver Matrix.

For other Thinkpad models, go to http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=TPAD-MATRIX and choose your model.

In fact, I am talking about both. The Access IBM (corresponding to the button) does not work properly with the latest version of Adobe Flash player.
And I also disabled the Thinkvantage access connections (for wireless) and my connection works much better when it is managed by the Microsoft utilities. For your information, I was faced with the same problem when trying to use Asus wireless coonections management tools on another comuter. This does not mean that Microsoft utilities are better than others, but obviously their tools are better integrated with their OS.
