I installed Update rollup 4 for Exchange 2007 Service Pack 1 on my SBS 2008 server and this 1 caused all of the exchange and other services to become disabled (which I fixed) but 2 it caused OWA to becaome text only and completly messed up.  I am able to log in (in a text window not the normal splash screen for OWA) and when I login I see messages that are current but in weird text hyperlinks that an not be clicked on or sccessed and the formatting is all wrong (attached screen shots of login and main screen).

Also I was planning on trying the 5 roll up tonight but I also don't want to really break it since the last one went so awkwardly.

Rollup 6 is the latest - released last night.
I would suggest you go straight to that version and see whether it resolves the issue.

Commented:
stange, because I've already done the rollups on customer sites, no problem at all ...
but actually I am noticing many bugs here on EE on SBS 2008, I guess you can't test it all ... .
It's a bit of a bad situation because you now have everything stable but OWA, which is not thAt business critical ...on the other hand your could try the rollup 5 which -could- cause more problems, but on the other hand -could- fix it all ... guess that's our job, isn't it :-)
and as we all know, backup first !!!

"Rollup 6 is the latest - released last night. "
yes, I knew of that one, but maybe it needs some testing first ... you see how the other two behave :-p
anyway, it still is an MS realese :p

You should just run the Fix My Network Wizard to repair that problem.

When I run Diagnose and repair wizard from the networking menu it says there are no problems found.

That's not the "Fix My Network Wizard", which you'll find in the SBS Console > Network > Connectivity Tab Tasks list.

Installing Roll-up 5 should also fix the problem, but it doesn't hurt to run the Fix My Network Wizard.

I tried the proper "fix my network Wizzard" no dice.  I am going to do Roll-up 5 tonight and report back if I don't hear of any other alternatives.  Thanks!

FYI, Roll-up 6 was released a couple of days ago, it should be in your updates ready to deploy.

Update Rollup 5 fixed the issue along with a couple others.
