    Unanswered: All of the sudden cant connect to sql

    HI guys I was on SQL Server importing and exporting and I noticed it kept freezing up then when I closed it and tried to get back in it gave me an error message. Help please


    TITLE: Connect to Server
    ------------------------------

    Cannot connect to DESIREEMM1.

    ------------------------------
    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

    A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: TCP Provider, error: 0 - No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 10061)

    For help, click: Source: MSSQLServer ID: 10061 (SQL Server ) - Events And Errors Message Center: Message Details
