HI,
    one of my mate cancelled the windows update (while in progress) on SBS 2008 standard for some reason. the update that was cancelled was "update Rollup 10 for exchange server 2007 service pack 1(kb 981407)". Since then no one can access webmail, it gives "http error 500.19- Internal Server error" with error code 0x8007007e. tried repairing windows sharepoint services 3.0, MSXML 4.0 sp2 but no success. Checked iis and found that i can't access webmail, http, https, sharepoint 3.0 central administration. Can't do managed windows update as its getting error Code 8024401F. so i had to update by "checking online for microsoft updates". I don't want to reinstall IIS  as it is SBS and its a big trouble. Some one please help as i am running out of time

Otherwise - do you have a backup you can restore from?

I tried the above solution it did not work for me. removed and reinstalled the exchange rollup udate, And when i tried to remove the OWA virtual directory, i got an error msg that no virtual-dir exists, i moved on to next step which is to create one and it was created, but no result

As far as Backup is concerned, i got data and system state backup
