Companyweb Server Error in '/' Application.

After a sbs 2003 Prem (ISA also involved) run out off diskspace the customer run Disk cleanup on drive c (system). Before that we tried to install several updates. Now the companyweb isn't working.

SBS BPA Tool stated me to downgrade the ASP.NET to version 1.1.x which I did. At that point I received this error message:

Server Error in '/' Application.

Configuration Error
Description: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file required to service this request. Please review the specific error details below and modify your configuration file appropriately.

Parser Error Message: Unrecognized attribute 'processRequestInApplicationTrust'.

Line 74:   </system.web>

Source File: c:\inetpub\companyweb\web.config    Line: 72


Version Information: Microsoft .NET Framework Version:1.1.4322.2407; ASP.NET Version:1.1.4322.2407

BUT since I found some there else that ASP.NET should be 2.0.x I selected that under companyweb properties. Now I receive this message:

Server Error in '/' Application.

The resource cannot be found.
Description: HTTP 404. The resource you are looking for (or one of its dependencies) could have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.  Please review the following URL and make sure that it is spelled correctly.

Requested URL: /default.aspx

Version Information: Microsoft .NET Framework Version:2.0.50727.832; ASP.NET Version:2.0.50727.832

Currently the owa isn't working too. I manually decompressed the web.config (nothing else so far) file under inetbub since that was also compressed at the begin.

Any ideas?

Double check the web publishing rules, my guess is that the rules are being blocked by some other, use the monitoring (ISA) when trying to access the web sites...

Other thing, double check if the private IP address did not change.

As ISA is unfamiliar to me I noticed that there aren't any MS ISA or relates services running on the server. But to NICs insted. I don't know why but if I start CEICW there won't show up the stage where are asked what Sites I want to publish to Internet. Wonder where they are setup.

If I try this:

https://localip:444 I get a screen asking for credentials but after giving them I get an error message warning about certificate and then my credentials are asked. I have provided them the both ways:
domain\username + pw and username + pw
I finally get the page refused to show up (http 443) error message. Nothing special in the event viewer at the time.

In the event viewer I can see several EventID 1000 errors, Unable to connect the DB STS_sbsserver_1 at target sbsserver\sharepoint. I don't know which of my tests or what produces them.

The Companyweb certificate seems to be a public.

The default web site has a public certificate but the companyweb seems have only a self signed certificate.
