This sounds blaster worm related, try the following:

1) Run a virus scan or run Blaster removal tool (From Symantec).
2) Reinstall service pack (3 or 4 for Win2000)
3) Install the MS security patches:Windows2000-KB823980-x86-ENU and Windows2000-KB824146-x86-ENU which are available on the MS site.
4) Then you will be able to remove your IIS component and then reinstall

Commented:
Have you tried uninstalling IIS, removing everything from the ..\inetsrv directory and then reinstalling?

Remove IIS
Use Windows Explorer to navigate to the:
%Windir%\Profiles\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Crypto\Rsa\MachineKeys directory.

Rename the Machinekeys folder to Machinekeys1
Reinstall IIS.

Here is the error message but I could install IIS
CoCreateinstanceEX() failed On Ibrokservers the executable program that this server is configured to run in does not implement the service

Commented:
Oh dear it sounds like your OS is very ill.  Did you archive your files when you installed service pack 4?  If you did you could uninstall it and then reapply it.

Other than that I can't think of anything else other than a "Hit it with a big stick" reinstall OS approach.

Good Luck

OK this has been fixed the only problem left is when I get to pages with https then it can not display the pages any ideas???

Commented:
Is your cert installed?
Is your port set to 443 in the sites properties?
Are trying to use HTTPS on >1 site?

Author

Commented:
Yes the cert is installed and port 443 is activated and there is just this site running on 443 but what I can pull up on thhp crashes on https couls be a user should I add to the web folder to allow this??

Commented:
So, HTTP works, but HTTPS does not?
That would not be permissions / user related if that is the case...

What is the error?

Author

Commented:
because after the hack the only things messed up were premissions and user to the folder the error is:
athe page can not be displayed

Commented:
ok, but HTTP uses the same permissions as HTTPS.

are there any scripts that redirect HTTP requests to HTTPS?

is the page on the web somewhere to look at?

that sounds like a config problem in IIS, not perms... have you tried recreating the problem site from scratch?

Author

Commented:
I dont have any redirect but from basket the form post to https page

www.reflectingconcepts.com

and this site has already been recreated after the attack
