Error message when opening up ACT 2012 .... After Windows update

When I updated my computer recently due to a Windows update alert. Ever since then I cannot open ACT 2012.

 

I have tried running the program as the administrator…

I have made sure that the SQL Server is running…

Nothing seems to be working. Here is the error message that I received:

 

The database could not be accessed.  In order to access this database, check your network connections and verify that your database server is available. it may be necessary to disable any firewall software on your computer or the server.

 

I am presently running Windows 8.1 Pro and I am using ACT 2012.

 

Thanks for your help.
