What Joomla version were you running and trying to update to? What error messages are you getting with regards to the Joomla updating - is your site working normally (apart from the issue at hand)? Can you access administrator and front end? Is your PHP the appropriate version (e.g. 5.3.10 minimum for latest Joomla 3.6.5).

If you want to install Joomla again, you could simply delete the files (through normal O/S methods - select and delete the files in the file manager). If that's not what you mean please explain further your problem.

What database - MS SQL Server or MySQL, PostgreSQL etc?

Is IIS running correctly - are you able to view any sort of "localhost" pages (even simple HTML pages)?
