Can you go to Administrative Tools  > Event Viewer and see what errors are reported when this happens?

I have looked there and there is nothing going on. I mean it says IIS restarted and its in a running state.

I'm a little confused. When do you get the "IIS could not start on a timely fashion" message, when you boot up?

If the system logs IIS as running shouldn't you just be abled to click the play button for your website and start it?

Ok...But IIS reinstall ins't proper way to handle the problem.If you have 500 websites then It isn't possbile to reinstall IIS & configured all sites.
