SQL Server 2005 on SBS 2003 Fails to start after new antivirus install

I have been using SQL 2005 on SBS 2003 for years. No problem. Yesterday I upgraded from Trend Micro Worry Free Business Services 6 to WFBS 7.0. Now I'm really worried. SQL SErver 2005 won't start at all, si I can't run my principal data base. Looking at the log, there is an 26014, SEverity 16, State 1 error,  "unable to load user specified certificate". This obviously stemmed from the uninstall of 6.0 and the install of 7.0.

Would appreciate any thoughts on going on and how do I fix it.

Thanks!

Found the fix. Deleted the existing SSL certificates, then deleted the certificate reference in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQLServer\SuperSocketNetLib\Certificate
