There are two things I think you can try to resolve this problem.

1, log into SQL Server Management Studio and try again.


Navigate to the data folder called IONDATA I think, right-click on that folder and temporarily edit Security to add Everyone and give it full control permission and try again.

Once done, you can delete the everyone account.

Good luck
