Unable to open an Access .mdb file

This is not the main cause; however, read this strange scenario, you might be another victim:

When I double clicked an .mdb file to open it on my new machine which have MS Office 2010 installed, including Access, it just opened another Office interface rather than Access without any  access features and in the status bar, it was written, "Powered by Microsoft Access".

When I open the Access application from the Start Menu, it initiated the Setup application and configured itself.

Back to the .mdb, when I clicked it, it opened like a charm!!!
