MSSQL$Sharepoint service is Stopped -- AGAIN !?

A little over a month ago, my SBS 2003 server was unable to start the Sharepoint services. Based on the responses from this forum, I followed the recommendation to de-install and re-install Sharepoint services, apply all the patches, etc.  It was working fine from May 31 until yesterday.  Suddenly, at 8:04 am, the MSSQL$Sharepoint service stopped and everytime I try to start it, it generates the same database error as it was a month ago.  I get the floowing error every 5 seconds (again). Why would this error suddenly return ?   We're not really using any Sharepoint services features, so would I be safe just deinstalling Sharepoint Services and not reinstalling ?

can you post the ERRORLOG file of your sql server instance?
it should be in the LOG folder of that named instance software folder.

I already :un-installed" SHarepoint services 'cause I was getting tired of all the errors being logged so the ERRORLOG is gone.
But, last time I had this error, this was the contents of the ERRORLOG:
