The Windows Internal Database is corrupt; no basic repair has worked.
is there a problem with uninstalling SharePoint, rename the database files and running a new SharePoint setup?

    Should not be a problem. You may want to start fresh and uninstall the SQL Server as well.

    Good Luck!

    If you have a support case open, they should be able to walk you through/perform the repair.
    The repair guide for Sharepoint Services is found here

    The service will not start
    We are not using SharePoint; there is no Company Web on the server.
    I have been working with Symantec; seems like SQL, and Windows Internal Data service is the problem.
