I have an issue on a site where they are longer able to access company web. I installed some windows updates recently and one of them was KB2837616 which is a security update for SharePoint  http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=42839

When trying to access company web users are presented with the "an unexpected error has occurred"

I have gone through the following TechNet article which details how to repair access to the internal website and one of the steps mentions to recreate the internal website. It asks to access the SharePoint 3.0 central administration console however I am presented with "the page cannot be displayed" and cannot proceed.

Any ideas what I could try next?

Did you run the config wizard after you installed the update?
