Default Iis not works properly

Something goes wrong with my iis.
I am running a local site, offline, on my hard disk.
My system is win xp, sp1, with kerio firewall and kaspersky antivirus.

I cannot access my site from any browser.

I hit http://localhost/ or http://localhost/index.asp or or or many other alternatives.
No luck.
Firefox says 'the connection was refused when attempting to contact localhost'.
IE, the first time displays all of index.asp except graphics! But if i do a refresh or hit a link, the 404 not found page displays.
Same things about opera.

I stop firewall, antivirus, I stopped their services, I tried again but nothing changed.

I checked iis default web site properties but everything seems ok as far as I know.

I checked the path for iis files (inetpub/wwwroot), it is ok.

I tried to uninstall .net framework 1.1 but it cannot be unistalled properly. I also tried safe mode but it says it cannot be uninstalled in safe mode.

I uninstalled iis and istall it again. This was very bad. After this action, the internet information services did not display iis version 5.1 but

something like 2.1xxxx. And I checked to see the 'default web site' and it was not there(in iis)! So I had to restore a ghost backup to have a

normal-looked iis again.

I also made scandisk to fix any errors(no bad sectors at all).

I also made an upgrade to win xp, to repair any missing windows files, if there was a problem like that.

I made all these thing, so many hours, much frustation, and no luck. Iis still not works properly.

I cannot imagine what is the problem. I cannot think any other thing to do.

I am not sure if this is a pure iis problem or if there is something else that influence iis.

Please help me, i would appreciate it if you could give me a solution to my problem.

I have a similar problem. I have windowXp pro., ntfs.IIS was working fine a few days back(.htm, .asp files were working). then suddenly from today when i write http://localhost in IE the message comes:

The page cannot be displayed
There is a problem with the page you are trying to reach and it cannot be displayed.

Please try the following:

Open the localhost home page, and then look for links to the information you want.
Click the Refresh button, or try again later.

Click Search to look for information on the Internet.
You can also see a list of related sites.

HTTP 500 - Internal server error
Internet Explorer

Send a message via Yahoo to Raghunathan


Kindly Check whether all your IIS Services are running
     1) IIS Admin Services
     2) World Wide Web Publishing Server

and select the above 2 service, right click on them and select START to start the services.

then goto START-->RUN and type InetMgr and click OK. your IIS will open
now check whether you get your default web site. if so, right click the default web site and click Browse option and you;ll get the IIS default home page

If above setting are proper and still not working then you gotta re-install the IIS
