We have an Intranet site that was set up in SharePoint 3.0. Over the weekend windows updates were installed, specifically KB2687442.
Now my Intranet site does not work. When I try and run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard it fails at step 9 with the following error :
Failed to upgrade SharePoint Products and Technologies
An exception of type System.InvalidOperationException was thrown. Additional exception information: Cannot start service SPAdmin on computer '.'.
When I try and start the Windows SharePoint services administration service manually it fails to start.
When I look in the windows event log there are errors in the application log about SQL exceptions
Software/Hardware used: windows server 2003, sharepoint 3.0, IIS 6.0, SQL express 2005
