'Server Busy' Message in Site Management

When going to the Site window, and then editing or adding a site my machine comes up with a message saying:

"Server busy, this action cannot be completed because the other program is busy.  Choose 'Switch to' to activate the busy program and correct the problem"

Trouble is, no other programs are running, only Dreamweaver MX, and hitting 'Switch to' just brings up the Start Bar.

I'm running Win XP Pro.

HELP!

What type of web server are you running?

Are you sure that the web server is running?

Your webserver is not running
OR
your FTP connection must be 'Use passive FTP'
Or
your testing Server is incorrectly setup (if applicable)
