    What SSMS version(s) do you have installed on the Client computer?
    Did you installed any SQL service pack for the tool itself? Remember they need updates as well.
    Do you have a local host file?

    Technicaly there is no "Query Analyzer 2005" but "SQL Management Studio 2005"

    And still 2 answers are needed..did you applied any SQL Service pack on your client SSMS 2005?
    Is there any VPN/Firewall between client computer and SQL server

    This problem was solved by clicking on the top bar ,then maximizing and minimizing.
    Very ANNOYING problem because it virtually locked the ability to use it up for hours.

    I never found out what the message was.. but it persisted over system restart.
    Thanks for the suggestions..
