VSS VS.NET disconnect with "Invalid Handle"

This morning I was working along in Visual Studio.NET (same as always for the last 4 years) and suddenly my UPS failed, and my machine went down.  I brought it back up, and now I can't open any of my projects in Visual Studio with Visual Source Safe.  It throws the error "Invalid Handle."  I can see the vss ini file on my network, and I can log in as Admin, but I can't log in as "me" (the regular user I use when I'm developing and working with files.)

My search of the net returns very little in the way of information about this error, and nothing that seemed to apply to me.  I can get to the INI file in VSS just fine (no network problems.)

Has anyone seen anything like this, or have any idea where I can look for the answer?

1) .NET version:  2002, 2003, or 2005?
2) VSS version
3) Does the VSS GUI application work outside of Visual Studio?

Bob,

Thanks for your reply.

1) Visual Studio .NET 2003 version 7.1.3088 (DotNet Framework 1.1 version 1.1.4322 SP1)
2) VSS Version 6.0d (build 9849)
3) When I try to open the VSS GUI, it throws the same error (Invalid Handle) because it tries to automatically log me in with my name, but I can log in as ADMIN.  So Yes, I can get into the GUI.

Step 1 is to run the ANALYZE utility in the Win32 folder against the database.  It will check for database consistency.
