I manage an intranet app which uses a SQL Server 2005 (I think) database for its internal workings. Occasionally, I have to get into the database to fix a piece of info that's gotten garbled, but not mess around with the structure or otherwise do anything complicated with it. I used to have a client on my XP machine that let me do this, but I've recently been upgraded to Win7 and now no one in PC Support has a clue as to what needs to be installed to give me back this basic access to my data. What should they be looking for, either in SQL Server 2005 or 2008, for installation?

Thanks.

Well, I think you need to install SQL Server 2005/2008. Within MS SQL server you can run MS Management Studio to run queries or Enterprise Manager which is a much more User friendly. Note: that you will need to have credentials to access the database on back end.
