ASP 'compilation error' and Windows Update

Winodows Server 2003.

WSUS is running, but I cannot open the console window. I believe it is related to repeated ASP errors in the event log:

Event Type:      Warning
Event Source:      ASP.NET 2.0.50727.0
Event Category:      Web Event
Event ID:      1310

Event code: 3007
Event message: A compilation error has occurred.
Exception message: (0): error CS0006: Metadata file 'C:\WINDOWS\assembly\GAC_32\System.EnterpriseServices\2.0.0.0__b03f5f7f11d50a3a\System.EnterpriseServices.dll' could not be found

The reason that the dll cannot be found is that the directory does not exist in Windows\assembly. But, it is actually in  C:\WINDOWS\WinSxS\x86_System.EnterpriseServices_b03f5f7f11d50a3a_2.0.0.0_x-ww_7d5f3790.

I have checked permissions for Network Service on Windows\Temp and the TEMP ASP.Net folders. Also tried aspiis_reset and uninstall/reinstall of IIS and WSUS. Could not uninstall .NET though....Ideas welcome!

thanks,
Jo

"Could not uninstall .NET though"

Did you try the removal tool?
