SQL Express Backup Exec Database won't start

My database for Backup Exec, MSSQL$BKUPEXEC won't start.
In the event log I see this.
The log scan number (269:296:2) passed to log scan in database 'master' is not valid. This error may indicate data corruption or that the log file (.ldf) does not match the data file (.mdf). If this error occurred during replication, re-create the publication. Otherwise, restore from backup if the problem results in a failure during startup.
I need to get this up and running within the next couple of hours.  I have symantec support on the phone but might be on hold for a while.  I would rather award points here for a fix.


I have no backup of the database.  It is just Backup Catalogs.  Nothing critical.
