Service Pack 2 has a built in firewall. Have you tried turning it off?

I wouldn't recommend turning off a firewall.

Try opening port 80 on the Windows Firewall.

Well, I don't recommend turning it off permanently either, but it is easier to just switch it off, try it and turn it back on. It also depends on your current environment. If you are in a corporate or home environment where you already have a firewall, it isn't going to affect you as much to turn it off. Personally, I wouldn't depend solely on the built-in firewall as it seems to cause more problems than it is worth.

How are you trying to connect to your web applications? If you are just trying to connect locally, then you shouldn't have to open any ports.

Service pack 2 was a huge update and made many changes, so I guess my next suggestion would be to go through your event logs and see if you can find any error codes there. What specifically is it doing when you try to load a page?

I am running at home. Basically, if I try to load a page it never loads and will eventually time out. I turned off the windows firewall but that didn't solve the problem. If I try to run mmc and then inetsrv that never starts either.

Have you tried uninstalling IIS and reinstalling it or checked your services to be sure it is starting? Any event log errors?

Try to check your iisadm,WWW services if its started or not. IOf not started, restart manually, if it happens that your start up mode is automatic but the status is stoped, better check your log files (event viewer) for erros...
