How do you resolve a Windows Sharpoint Server event log error on Windows 2003 SBS

When I reboot the server I noticed that the event log had the following errors listed about 8 times in a row.

Event ID 1000
Source: Windows SharePoint Service

#50070:  Unable to conect to the database STS_Config on dell-server\SharePoint.  Check the database connection information and make sure that the database server is running.

I noitced that in the error above it says "dell-server\SharePoint" the server name has been changed to something else, Could this be why we are getting this error?  How would I change this error.

I also went to SharePoint Central Administration. and it trys to open up a webpage going to http://localhost:8081 that doesn't load

We don't use the SharePoint services.  I do believe it is even turned off in IIS or at least stopped.

are you running wss or is it a server without any of those services and your still getting the error ?

We don't use WSS to my knowledge.  unless it needs to be installed because of other services need it.

Earlier tonight I went into IIS and stopped the SharePoint Central Administration and Microsoft SharePoint Administration
Just now I just read this article and tried to uninstall it WSSe

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc288469.aspx

I show three sites
companyweb (which I uninstalled) and it shows not installed
Default web site (shows v5.0.2.5012) and status "Upgrade"
Microsoft SharePoint Administration (shows v5.0.2.5012) and status "Not Administrable"

The companyweb seems to be the only one I was able to uninstall

I'd like to just remove the whole works if I don't need it for any other services that might depend on it, but I doubt there is.

i you dont have anything else tied to the default website once complete you could always uninstall iis and then reinstall it.  it would then show up clean.

What do you use this server for?

Well I just ended up removing IIS from compontents and was going to reinstall IIS but now I'm running into an issue finding a convlog.exe file, I keep pointing to the file on the root of i386 but no go.  So I'm stuck at the moment.

This server is just used as a file storage, domain logon and Kaspersky monitoring server.  It's for a small jewelry store with 1 server and 3 workstations.  I just installed an agent that watches the event logs and saw that it was throwing these errors on SharePoint which isn't used by the employees so I figured that I would just uninstall it.  I somehow overlooked the entry of "Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 2.0" in the add/remove programs.  I uninstalled this also along with removing IIS.  Hopefully I can figure out the issue with reinstalling IIS but I think this issue will be resolved when I do.  Thanks for all your help mccarthybri

Just ended up removing IIS component and removing Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 from add/remove programs for the easiest way to fix SharePoint which isn't used on the file server.
