View Full Version : IIS will not run

11-09-2001, 01:56 PM
Hi all,

I'm running Win2000 professional and despite reinstalling Windows this problem will not go away!

Problem is that I am unable to launch IIS. When I click on the pws icon in my system tray nothing happens, yet I see that pws.exe appears in the task manager process list.
Right clicking on the same icon and selecting 'start service' does exactly the same thing - ie the icon does not change to the service running icon, but pws.exe appears in the processes list.
I've noticed that I can't launch the IIS snap-in either, although mmc does appear in the processes list as well.
I've tried deleting and then reinstalling this windows component as well without joy.
Now, for some reason I've lost the tray icon all together, even though pwstray.exe remains in the processes list!!
Any help greatly appreciated.
