A sharepoint update installed via windows updates, not I can't access sharepoint

A sharepoint update installed itself via windows updates, not I can't access sharepoint.  I had no idea that auto install updates was on.  Uninstalling the update did not work from add/remove programs didn't work.  I do however have full backups, including system state going back 3 weeks, so restoring from that is an option.

When I try to go to the site I get "Server Error in '/' Application." and it mentions that I can modify my web.config to make it show the real error.  I'm willing to do that, but I'm wondering if anyone knows how to roll back this sharepoint update.

Yeah I think it was the service pack 4 update that did it.  Because it was a service pack I couldn't just roll it back by doing a uninstall.

I tried your psconfig command but couldn't get the update to go through.  I also tried restoring my c:\program files folder, but I couldn't install some of the more important files while the system was running.

So I had to bite the bullet and do a full system restore, from the full nightly backups I have.  I have a lot of data on the server, and with a full restore from windows server backup 2008 it took 10 hours to restore my C drive(28GB used out of 150GB) and my D drive(500GB used out of (1.75TB).  This type of restore forced me to restore the D drive, which only has data, not install files or system files, and I believe that it also formats the disks before the restore, which may be why it took forever.  It took 30 minutes to restore the C drive, and 9 hours for the D.

But now everything is working and I turned off updating completely, and have hid that update.

I rolled back the update without looking but, I believe its either KB2553018 or KB2463332, they are my availale updates in windows updates

I have rebooted a few times and tried restarting sharepoint services and iis

I cannot access the Sharepoint 3.0 central administration console.  I was able to yesterbay, but I've been messing around with this and may have made it worse

Sounds like the update didn't finish.

Try running the following command and see if it completes the update:

psconfig -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -wait -force
