Running MS Access in Terminal Server causes utilization to go up to 50%

When running MS Access in Terminal Server, the utilization goes up to about 50% until the app is closed. It never causes the server to crash, but the utilization slows down the whole server. I need to get more people onto the old app, but am scared that the server won't be able to cope. (MSAccess Any thoughts?
Unfortunately, that is the nature of the beast when using TS and many MS applications. I'd remove any other non-essential services and background applications to give the CPU as much room as possible. Add more memory and consider upgrading the CPU/motherboard to a dual or quad system. If this is a mission critical server, you may even want to move up to a cluster server.
