Don't know what happened but on my Windows 7 64bit the connection to SQL2005 using SQL Native client is not working anymore.

More in detail, if I try to connect to the SQL server using oledb it works fine, no matter is from VB.NET, UDL file, MS Access, ODBC etc etc

If I try the same (same user, same server, same database) using SQL Native client, it hangs. It hangs from a VB.net program, hangs from an UDL file, hangs from ODBC source etc

I tried many things without solving it. Is there a way to reinstall, fix, restore etc etc Sql Native client?
