I have a Windows 2000 Server with SP4 running IIS 5.0. I don't have any SSL enabled websites or certificates installed. When starting IIS it starts a process on 443. Is there a way of disabling this feature as I want to use port 443 for something else?

Thanks in advance.

Grab a copy of Meta Edit (http://www.webattack.com/get/metaedit.shtml).  Run it, and search (F3) for 443.  When you find it, right click on it, and modify.  You can change the SSL port to any other port.  I had found a process to completely remove it via a dos command a few months back, but havent been able to find it again.
