Dear Experts,

When I upgrade sql server 2000 to SQL server 2005 by follow this steps:
backup in sql 2000, detach user DB, backup jobs.
run script get user login in sql 2000, then rerun script in SQL server 2005
restore jobs in sql sever 2005,
install sql server SP3.
when I installed SQL 2005 SP3, the SQL server management server stoped, I can not manually start SQL server SSMS.
Here is error from log file:
