ACT 2012 Pro: Microsoft SQL Server is not running / Error 3417

I've read some threads with tips for the above error, but nothing has worked.  I'm not compressed.  User controls are set to full control.  Is it possible to get this running without uninstalling/reinstalling ACT?

I need help.  I wish ACT could just fix itself...

Hello mmaddo,
Welcome to the Sage ACT! Community. What is the exact error message and when does it occur? Are you opening a local database or one that is hosted on another machine? You can verify that the SQL Server service is started via the instructions in this KB article:
