Hi silyaza,

did you get this sorted? I had exact same problem last weekend on a new PC, and it turned out to be down to McAfee Privacy Service being incompatible with IIS, its a known issue apparently! I had to uninstall MPS (disabling it is not enough), then uninstall and reinstall IIS before it would work.
