error message: UNABLE TO CONNECT

I keep getting the following error message when trying to connect to ANY data source - even sources that I had already successfully connected to in the past:

Any idea how to fix this?

I completely uninstalled and reinstalled the program, and that finally did the trick.  Thank you.

Then try to connect data source to check if there is any issue.

Thank you for the response.  I tried that, but it did not work.  I'm going to uninstall and reinstall to see if that helps.
