After downloading and installing a third party webpart, I am unable to log into my WSS 3.0 Central Admin page.  I get the following error:

Is there any way around this?  I've uninstalled the webpart ( turns out it didn't do what I wanted anyway... but I'm still getting the error.

Any help would be welcomed,

This problem has been solved.  I was able to restore the virtual directory for the Central Admin page from backup, which got me back to fully functional again.  Still haven't determined what went astray... but the restore worked.
