You might try the following


Go to Start button

Click and select Run

Type in the following services.msc

Once this is open go down the list until you find the firewall, it could even be Windows firewall plus the Kaspersky

Click on Stop these services


See if database now open so then you will know it is a firewall problem and you need to look on the Kaspersky websit eon how to add both ACT and the SQL engince access through these. There are some instructions on this in the act knowledgebase for Windows firewall but might be different for Kaspersky
