I have noticed that my cpu has been running at 100% lately. I restart the "IIS Admin Service" which also restarts the FTP, WWWP, and SMTP service as well. When I try to restart all these services, the World Wide Web Publishing Service hangs on stopping. I tried to look on the web for "World Wide Web Publishing Service hung" and all the articles I get are about the service hanging on start. That isn't the case. I tried looking up inetinfo.exe 100% and get articles on Windows 2000 with Exchange 2000 and this isn't an exchange server. So I'm a little puzzled.
I just restarted the WWWP service and it did it without hanging, so I restarted it. About two minutes later it was back at 100% so I tried again to restart the WWP service and it hung on stopping with the error
1503: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
Gah! Any ideas anyone?
