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.

Is your sql server service up and running, if yes then you could try the uninstall ssms by following this article and then download/reinstall ssms either by dvd or from microsoft site

If your sql server service is not running then its a bigger issue and need to be looked at more carefully

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.
