I had something very similar to this with another windows update. Took me a long while to figure out

Chances are what has happened is that the user that sharepoint uses possibly SYSTEM or NETWORK_SERVICE has had permissions removed from the directory in which the database resides. You need to search for the MDB files and re-add the user permissions to the folder and child objects.

I can';t be much more specific than that because many setups are different but it should give you a good starting place.

Ok, the Network Service did not have permissions to any folders or files.   I added the Network Services back to the folders and child object, but still am getting the same error.  When I look in the event viewer I am also getting an error that states I can not open database "STS_Config" requested by the login. Login Failed.

Wait, it did work, there was one more area where the STS_Config was located, that I need to bring down to the child object.  Once this was done, we were back in business.

Thank you very much!
