I have an Exchange Server part of SBS that I believe has a corrupted installation due to virus activity.  Currently the folliwing three services fail to start:

Exchange System Attendant
Exchange Information Store
Exchange MTA Stacks

Event IDs 1002, 1005, 9004 are logged when I attempt to start services. What is the best way to  recover from here.  Should I uninstall and reinstall Exchange.

Symantec old version, 8.x, apparently combofix was run on the server to remove the exploit.

Setup a temorary server and moved all services over to it.  Will reinstall the OS and all services, import mailboxes from offline backups.
