I'm currently troubleshooting a SBS 2008 box which has had a few issues, and noticed that when trying to run Sharepoint 3.0 central administration the error is reported within the image given.

It then asks to run the sharepoint configuration wizard  IIS error which states that an IIS web site already exists.

I'm unable to connect to any of the companyweb sites etc.

I'm looking for pointers as to what to try next.

What lead to this error?  This usually wouldn't just happen on a functional box.

Have you tried runing the Config Wizard?

This box has been having issues for a while, I believe and we're engaged in trying to get it sorted.

The image above is from the config wizard.

Are you sure you are running the central admin? As in cases the central admin shortcut is "replaced" with a shortcut to the config wizard. As the error you are showing is from the config wizard.

Can you crosscheck the Central Admin site in IIS.
Is both the application and application pool of Central Admin are in Started mode.

Try restarting both of these inIIS and try browsing the site from IIS itself.
