How do I execute a DOS command / batch file / exe from ASP?

You can use ASPExec from http://www.serverobjects.com/. Alternatively, if you have Windows Script Host installed, you can do this (sorry, I've only had the time to test .bat files):
 
<%
    set wshell = server.createobject("wscript.shell")
    wshell.run "c:\file.bat"
    set wshell = nothing
%>
 
 
Where c:\file.bat is something like:
 
    net stop iisadmin /y
    net start w3svc
 
 
 
OR
 
    attrib c:\boot.ini -h -r -s -a
