Have you tried running a repair from the SharePoint CD - this might work?

First,  go to IE > Tools > Internet Options > Advanced and then uncheck  "show friendly http error messages"  this way you can see a better error message.  Then re-post that error

I have unchecked "frindly error message". & Only difference after unchecking is I see
"500 INTERNAL SERVER ERROR" inside iexplorer. (& thats the only line inside IE there's nothing else excepct that line)

tusharashahAuthor Commented:
I have to re-install SPS & then restore the old site.

I loose some folders but got 90% site back.

& I'll have to delete this question.

Thanks for your help jullianH/my51chevy.
