Anyway, I re installed IIS, and it worked, so I decided to do a windows update for security patches, installed, restarted, but what happened? IIS doesn't work now!!
Now, it's probably just thick me missing something, but seriously, can't Mircrosoft do something user friendly apart from the dam green start button that I don't have a clue how to change the colour of!!
ANYWAY BACK TO MY PROBLEM, I can now access IIS from the Administrative Tools under my Control Panel, but that's it, it opens, there's no "reset" or anything. It already has my computer added to the list, but I can't figure out why I can view pages under the 'website' folder.
I have done tons of IIS installations and never have the problems you have. It always just works the first time. All I do is install Windows, Run Windows Update for everything, and then run MBSA and you are secured. (as secure as can be)
