In one instance, it created a strange screen saver that emulated a BSOD. In another instance, it changed the wallpaper to a spyware warning. But the weird thing is that if you go to the display properties, the necessary tabs you need to reverse those problems are gone.
Best course of action is to use this wallpaper hijacker remover:
Here is what an altered wallpaper looks like:

With "SharePoint - 80" in place, OWA does not work, nor does RPC over HTTP. In fact, with "SharePoint - 80" in there, the default web site shows as "stopped." When you try to start the default web site, it says "the process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process." Very strange.

When creating a Blackberry Professional Express server, it needs to have SRP access to the Blackberry servers (port 3101). They have a test for this connectivity here:
c:\Program Files\RIM\BlackBerry Enterprise Server\Utility\BBSRPTEST.EXE
I was having trouble with getting port 3101 to connect to the RIM server, and then I thought I made some firewall changes to make it work - but even after disabling the firewall changes I made, it still worked - so I figure it worked without my assistance. For my own knowledge . . .
I opened up port 3101 outbound to all blackberry.net addresses and I made sure the SBS Internet Access Rule was set for all users and was not set to read only for FTP. I made these changes and then it worked. Then I disabled all these things, and it still worked. I have replicated this issue multiple times. Very strange.
This is what the test gives you when it's successful:
c:\Program Files\RIM\BlackBerry Enterprise Server\Utility>BBSrpTest.exe
NetworkAccessNode is srp.us.blackberry.net.
Attempting to connect to srp.us.blackberry.net (184.108.40.206), port 3101
