Did you do the 'standalone' install, or is there a separate sql server?  Check event viewer logs and let us know relevant nastygrams when you fire it up.

Hi there
The error that I receive is "Cannot complete this action please try again" when running http://companyweb. The support article refered by microsoft assumes that access is availble via the admin account and refers to the sharepoint user rights. The problem is that I have no access to Sharepoint even as Administrator

Aahh. Sbs 2003 or 2008?  Also, try going to a workstation and hitting http://companyweb. What happens there?

Knowing http://companyweb, I'll assume it's SBS 2008 with the built in SQL Express - safe assumption?
Check your Windows Event Viewer logs whilst hitting http://companyweb.  Can you include a screen shot of the error you see, and the event viewer (system and application will be best) of that timeframe?
