    You have SQL Server 2005 Express installed in your machine which doesn't have SQL Server Management Express ( SSMSE) console by default.
    You can get it from here:

    Seems like you have SQL Server 2008 also installed in your machine..
    Kindly check for SSMS in 2008 (if you have ) from which you can connect to this instance..

    Else you need to download SSMSE as mentioned earlier..
