PROBLEM: Default web site is stopped and will not start.
Error message is: "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process."
Event viewer (system log) also records the following errors:
"Cannot register the URL prefix 'https://*:443/'
for site '1'. The site has been deactivated. The data field contains the error number."
"Unable to bind to the underlying transport for 0.0.0.0:443. The IP Listen-Only list may contain a reference to an interface which may not exist on this machine."
I have rebooted (of course), tried all combinations of restarting WWW service and default site. I have stopped all sharepoint services in combination with my restart attempts, and also have stopped SAV as well. In addition I have excluded the INETPUB directory from SAV realtime protection.
Any other ideas...?
