Windows internal database service won't start

I have an SBS2008 server. The update service has stopped working. I cannot start Windows Internet Database service.

I cannot access the database instance \\.\pipe\MSSQL$MICROSOFT##SSEE\sql\query. I get an error saying cannot connect. I tried Run As Administrator

In configuration manager Named Pipes is enabled

The data base does exist in the SUSDB folder

I verified the permissions on [HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MICROSOFT##SSEE\MSSQLServer\SuperSocketNetLib\Np

I don't mind uninstalling and reinstalling WSUS but the uninstall fails

Any ideas how I can get this working again?

When you try to start the service Windows Internal Database (Microsoft##SSEE) you should get an event in the application log that tells you why it stopped / won't start.
