You probably have an error (syntax or otherwise) in your ASP page.

Try using Netscape 7.0 instead of IE. IE sometimes gives the annoying "Internal Server Error" without displaying the ASP errors. Netscape will show the ASP errors.

Alternatively, turn off the "friendly HTTP errors" in IE. To do this, open IE, then open the Options dialog. On the Advanced tab, deselect Show friendly HTTP error messages.

When you reload the page, you'll see the error message that the webserver has sent.

Never try Netscape on IIS_
Open IIS
Right click on default website
left click on properties
Go to directory security tab
click on Edit
Make sure that you have the check on the boxes: "Anonymous Access" and "Allow IIS to control Passwrord"

By the way, do you have SQL Desktop engine up and running?

I am still having same problem and had done the changes you guys offered. I composed a very simple asp page but still did not work. I had uninstalled Visual Studio.NET 2003 and .NET Framework 1.1 because of this. I really need help!

Thanks.

Well, I get the same HTTP 500 error today, but yesterday (and in the past) everything was OK. I tried all the suggestions here, but I got this error instead:

Server Application Error
The server has encountered an error while loading an application during the processing of your request. Please refer to the event log for more detail information. Please contact the server administrator for assistance.

I tried all IE 6.0, Opera 8.02, and Mozilla Firefox 1.0.3, and all of them gave the same error.

I need the solutions as soon as possible, since I am making a big project using ASP. Thanks.

Oh, by the way, when reinstalling IIS, the Setup said it couldn't copy adsutil.vbs from the CD. But, when I used the same CD in the past, no problems occured.

Is this file needed to run IIS completely without errors?

Sorry. I skipped that file and now my IIS works as usual. So, I conclude that the best solution to resolve any IIS problems is to reinstall it. Twice may help.

And now I'm curious why all of this happened in a sudden...
