My server was infected with W32.Downadup.B (Symantec) /  W32/Confick-D (Sophos). After cleaning, WSUS 3.1 is not working. I tried reinstalling .Net Framework 2.1 and reinstalling WSUS 3.1 keeping the old database, but without success.

I have this errors in Event Viewer


Event Source:      Service Control Manager
The SQL Server Integration Services service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

have you taken a look here ?
also Some variants of Downadup will disable BITS service , can you check if the service is not disabled ?

This site helped me and now WSUS console works, but I am not sure if everything is OK because in process monitor,  wsusservice still has lots of access denied events.


as advised, I gave full control to SYSTEM to pobpul1.dat :
cacls.exe c:\windows\assembly\pobpul1.dat /E /G SYSTEM:F

In Process monitor, this are the events where wsusservice has access denied, and I don't know the default permisions to this folders/files/keys in WIndows 2003 server with wsus.
