Before we do that... Can you tell me if by disableing the Norton Internet Security the problem stops? Or it just goes on as if the Norton Internet Security is not causing this problem.

Hmmm

If it worked last night, there is no reason for it to stop responding out of the blue. Did you establish a site already? If yes so go to the directory where you stored all information, relocate that information to a safe place; remove the IIS via 'Add/Remove Windows Components'; restart the Computer; Re-Install the IIS and start the IIS Console. Now, locate the files and start the 'Norton Internet Security'.

If it helps I would suggest any SpyWare (Where Norton Internet Security may not work) scanning, just to be on the safe side:

Any good SpyWare software:

(I would reccomend SpyBOT, which is a great Anti SpyWare removal tool).

Now, here we need to be gentle...

Allow all traffic for the time being so that we could nerrow all possibilities later (We need to see if you CAN access the IIS remotely BEFORE any Norton Internet Security (NIS) configuration).
