anyone know how to deal with an error 18456 on SQL 2005 Std?

A year or so ago we decided to install WSS3.0 on one of our SQL Server boxes. Saddly upon conifugration, we could not find on db binary, nor could we get the App to run.

We uninstalled WSS 3.0; however since then we are constantly recieving error 18456 and upon further search I found this KB Article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/889646

I have tried this, though there is no database on my SQL Server.

What other choices or possibilities do I have other than uninstalling and reinstalling SQL 2005?
