I was playing up with some SQL server 2008 parameters and probably enabled a tracing at Management Studio .

Now, I am not able to run any SQL. All I see is "Debugging Query". I have stopped and started SQL server services but no luck so far. Please see attached snap.

confirm whether you are hitting F5 or the execute button, '!', or you are hitting the debug button (looks like a green "play" icon).  

You can customize the toolbar, and get the debug button out of there.  A lot of people accidently get stuck on it.

You are right, I used the green button there by mistake. I cancelled now and using execute. It seem working.
What does a green Debug button do there? How can I customize the toolbar?

Many Thanks

uptop in the menu bar, select Tools, then Toolbars \ Commands.  play around with that a little, you will see how you can add or remove icons from the toolbar
