WSUS - Cannot Connect After Reinstall.  Permissions Error But Permission Are Correct

Hello All!

I started doing the WSUS updates for my company and out of 1 main server and 5 replica servers, 3 replicas didn't work.  Here are the specs:

All on Windows 2003 x86
WSUS SP1 x86
Used Windows Internal Database initially

I did get the 3 to work by uninstalling everything then reinstalling using SQL express 2005.  It worked great - but - found out that I installed it to the system partition and neede to have it on the other partition so I uninstalled and reinstalled them again to d: (data partition)

Now, when I try to load WSUS from the local server OR a remote one, I get a message saying that I don't have permission (Picture#1)  All permissions are set accordingly as I can still access the other replica servers.

Not only do I get that error, but picture#2 shows my event log (application).  THe details for one are in picture#3 and are the same for the other erros.  Instead of the DSS not loading, though, it says that SimpleAuth Web Serive and Self-Update arent either.  This information is AFTER I went into ISS and gave permissions for my user (domain admin) to all  serices underneath and had them apply to children.

ISS, WSUSServ, and a couple other services have the correct credintials as well.

I get these errors if I choose to go the SQL path OR the Windows Internal database path as well.


One more thing - I never could uninstall WSUS when I started.  It never would work so I had to use the Microsoft Office Clean-Up tool to uninstall.  
Please help!!! - Thanks

The accepted answer only refers to a tool, this cannot be a solution(as it doesnt help anyone else that reviews this question) What did the tool reveal? What further troubleshooting was done?
