HI there, I was doing a routine check and repair on the database and it said there were some errors and then locked the database.
I turned the computer off and on and off and on again and went to task manager to stop act processes and program.
I went to start
Clicked on "databases"
.... when I clicked "database list" to access the database to click on it to unlock it, I got this message, "unhandled exception" and it gave me options to click or continue or exit. each time I pressed continue it did nothing so I cant see the database to unlock it.
How do I unlock it now?

is this the error message you get when you try to open the database list:
If you get this message after a repair, try I think you got your database stuck in the single user mode.
I just wrote a short step by step guide how to solve this hope this could help you if you need help with this you could send me a pm.
It’s when you get a "critical error" at the repair then act put your database in "single user mode" but if there is any other connection you got stuck and can´t do anything cause the single slot is already taken by something.
The solution was to lock your database before the repair.
Maybe you could add a hint at the message that you recommend to lock the database before you continue the repair in single user mode.
