After using ACT! 16 throughout most of the day, I had to reboot my PC. When I did, ACT! 16 will start but my database will not open. I tried to open the demo database and the progress bar reaches the point where "Logon completed" is displayed then the progress bar stops. Aftter a few moments, I get the Windows error message, "Not Repsonding". I reviewed existing posts for a solution but I was unable to find a fix. The status of Sequel Server (ACT7) is Started and Startup Type is Automatic.
I would appreciate any help.

Try running actdiag and deleting the Preferences from the Tools menu.

Thank you for your suggestion. Running ACTDIAG just seems to be too daunting a task for me but I do appreciate your trying to be helpful.
My following comments are not directed to you, Stan. I"m writing them in hopes that maybe someone in management will see this.
I think I'm finished with ACT!. The first version I had, over 20 years ago, was stable and NEVER crashed or had issues with having to run something like ACTDIAG. Every upgrade since then has had issues. I had some issues a few months ago that I finally resolved after 7 - 10 days. It's been running fine until a few days ago when suddenly the program simply won't boot up. I've been a PC user for more than 30 years and I literally have never had a program that presents to many program issues. Other programs present functionality issues but that's far different from a progam refusing to open.
Thanks again, Stan, for your suggestions.
