ERROR MESSAGE: Accessing Database

For no reason at all, yesterday, when starting my ACT! 2006 program, I got the following message - -


ERROR MESSAGE: The database NEWACTDB could not be accessed.  In order to access this database, check your network connection and verify that your database server is available.  It may be necessary to disable any firewall software on your computer or server.


My database is not kept on a server, but in a file on my laptop.   Any ideas....HELP anyone......Thanks
