try control panel > software > add/remove windows components and remove + re-install
then re-install sp4 (I think it will upgrade IIS components)
good luck

The reinstall of SP4 may barf on IIS. If that happens, delete or rename the IIS metabase file and then reapply SP4.

I solved the problem by my self, just coped the backup of the meta file my_backup.md0 to metabase.bin
in %systemroot%\system32\inetsrv and restated iis admin service.
