IIS Running, but Web Svcs wont start
Posted on 2003-03-04
The cable guys came in yesterday and tried to set up broad band. They had a terrible time, never got broad band running, and seem to have trashed my machine pretty bad.
The most critical thing that doesn't work is that I can't get my default web site to run.
I'm running IIS 5.1 on XP
In the IIS management console I choose the web site and click start, after a few seconds I get "The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion."
In Services, the web publishing service is not started. When I try to start it I get "Could not start the WWW Pub service on Local Computer. Error 126: The specified module could not be found."
I've tried stopping & starting IIS, it seems to do fine from the services window. In another post it suggested running iisreset.exe. When I do that IIS stops fine, but then when it tries to start I get "Restart attempt failed. IIS Admin Service is disabled."
I checked the event viewer, and nothing is showing up in the last few minutes (I just retried everything), but there are some error events from earlier today:
EventID:3001 Source:LoadPerf "The performance counter name string value in teh registry is incorrectly formatted."
EventID:3011 Source:LoadPerf "Unloading the perofmance counter strings for service WmiAplRpl failed"
Does anyone have any suggestions?
