I would try simply uninstalling and reinstalling SSMS, or run a repair install process on it.  You can do this without touching the SQL server software itself, so there shouldn't be any adverse affect on your SQL databases.

My clients can use the sql database but not on the server, I can not open SSMS on server.  So I assume that sql service is running.  Is this correct?
You can check this from the SBS server.  On the server itself, logged on as an administrator, go to Start/Administrative Tools/Services. On the Services list, look for SQL Server. You may see several of these, and if they are installed as different instances, you'll see the instance name after (i.e., SQL Server (SBS Monitoring)). Make sure it is set to Automatic startup and that it (or they) are running.
