Server 2003 Automatic Updates failed and IIS won't work

I have a client who ran Automatic Updates on their server 2003 and one of them failed (KB950159) and one was cancelled (KB959897); not sure what caused the failure or cancellation.  Now, after the server was rebooted, IIS will not display anything - this is a problem as this is their Exchange server.  I went into Add/Remove Programs, but neither update is listed so I am not able to uninstall it.  How can I revert back to a working state on the server?

If you try to rerun the updates, do they continue to fail?  What reason was provided for the failed updates?  You should be able to get that out of the Update history.  How is drive space doing on the server?  Regarding the uninstall, you can look for the specific KB reference within the Windows folder and run the uninstall manually from there.  However, you may not see anything, as they failed.

Oh, if you check the actual services, are any of the 'automatic' ones in a starting of not started state?

@Jer...thank you for reminding to check the simple things first.  I was so wrapped up that the problem was a corrupted update, that I couldn't see the forest throught the trees...in this case, the services through server.  Everything is now back on track.
