It looks like you have a bad installation of SQL Server. At least one of the system databases (the database used to hold temporary data while SQL Server is running queries) is missing. Did you delete it?

Could be that although in theory you can delete tempdb at virtually anytime and it will be re-created when needed by the system.

Are you sure? I thought tempdb was (re)created only when the server was restarted.
