service.lck problem


I'm using FP 2003 and IIS 6.0. On FP I see a certain directory, but it does not appear on the IIS 6.0 listing. Further on our Home Page the files geneerate a "page not found" even thopugh they are on the FP list and can be seen on Windows Explorer.

Also, when I try to delete a file in the root I got an error with the serveice.lck error. I deleted that file as per some innstructions to another user's problem on thgis fourm. However, now when I try to delete I get a "server error cannot delete message"

Please help!
