I deleted a database and then restored it from a symantec back up.  Now I get an error message trying to open SQL server manager that says

Cannot open user default database, login failed.  Login failed for (servername ) admin. Microsoft SQL error 4604

Can anyone tell me how to fix this.  I think the datbase is corrupted even on the restored version.  SQL server 2008.

I cant' get on the SQL Manager at all or see any of the databases.  Also when I tried solution 2 no databases are in the list so I hit browser for databases tyring to get to master and I get the same error message.  It won't let me browse.
