Suddenly, ACT! Won't play nice anymore. My "server" will not let the share database option work. It is not greyed out, but it does give a warning : WHEN YOU SHARE YOUR DATABASE, FILES ASSOCIATED WITH THE DATABASE ARE ASSESSABLE TO USERS ON YOUR NETWORK. However, it will not accept the required check.
I have full administrative rights on this computer. I have undone the Firewall, and UAC. I am out of ideas.

What windows operating system is your ACT "Server" ? If windows Vista or Win7 please ensure that the User Account Control is disabled., via your windows control panel.
It could also be damaged Preferences files. Please refer to this KB article on how to rebuild them: Rebuild ACT Preferences

Try logging in as LOCAL ADMIN and repeating the process. Alternatively, try moving the database to another location after detatching it from SQL.

These steps my be a bit technical, so again, consider an ACT consultant, but here you go.
Here is an article on Logging in as a Local ADmin (here)
Secondly, I would move to another folder (try making a folder called ACT off the root of C), then follow these steps to move your database there. (Here)
