The following infomation was showing up the last few weeks in the log, but was just as an information event.

hi

can you confirm if the sharepoint services service in the services.msc is started with local system a/c, network service. Can you set it to start with the sharepoint admin credentials and update the status

Robbie,
I saw that.  However it doesn't seem to offer any course of action?  Any way to remove the patch?

I'll give credit here as it was on the right track.  The service "Windows Internal Database (Microsoft##SSEE) was using the network service.  Once it was changed to the Local System our Sharepoint system started working again.
