Default ASP files generate global.asa error

I have installed IIS 5.1 on a PC with Windows XP Professional. Last night I could not get any locally served .asp files to open at all; I was constantly getting HTTP 500 error messages. Having read the Lorton/Richardson correspondence in the archives (http://www.mail-archive.com/asp_webs.../msg01328.html) and also the DW/Koya exchange (http://www.mail-archive.com/asp_webs.../msg00956.html) I have tried re-setting the security permissions for the default web site, and replacing the asp.dll file in case it had become corrupt. I can report some progress in that what happens now, instead of getting HTTP 500 error messages when I try to load ASP pages, I now get an "ASP preprocessor error" in the global.asa file: " Invalid ProgID attribute: the object has an invalid ProgID of 'MSWC.MyInfo'". Can anyone tell me how I should edit the relevant global.asa file to eliminate this - or perhaps do something different entirely? - so that I can run and test ASP pages? I am very keen to get stuck into the Beginning ASP 3.0 book, and am very frustrated by the problems I am encountering.:(

Thats what i have. sounds like its in a right mess. i'd uninstall and reinstall and see what happens. Mine works fine but i guess you wont want to know. that. I did have to onstall the latest scripting software from www.msdn.microsoft.com/scripting though ( 5.6 for xp) i could access before then though.

I have the same problem with invalid ProgID of 'MSWC.MyInfo' and would prefer a more discriptive answer that what Timmo gave.
