A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: TCP Provider, error: 0 - No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 10061)

Check with SQL Server Configuration Manager if you SQL service is running, if everything was working fine - service may be down, or someone has implemented new firewall rules or messed up with the networking protocols configuration.
Also verify in the config manager that network protocols - TCPIP is allowed.
