IIS will not start

I am running Windows 2000 Server, SP4, and for some reason (no recent installations, patches, updates) IIS fails to start. I get the following error in a Microsoft Management Console window:

Could not start the IIS Admin Service service on Local Computer.
Error 127: The specified procedure could not be found.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling IIS, both from I386 and then from the install disk.

Has anybody encountered this before?

Any ISAPI filters running?
Right click Web site, ISAPI FIlters and check what's there on the root, then the site(s).
Remove (uninstall) the ones you don't need try back, then if still no go, disable the others one by one until it works.

Thanks for your answer, but I'm not sure what you mean by right clicking Web Site. Where is this icon located?

Start IIS (MMC), then under, Web Sites, right-click that node, Properties, ISAPI Filters tab. Then expand that node and do the same on every web site you got.

IIS  doesn't start up. That's the problem I submitted. Thanks, though.

So when you pop the MMC for IIS you get that error right away? And you don't see the subfolder Web sites?

That's correct. I'm almost at the point of reinstalling the OS.

If that box is not in production yet for anything else, I would start fresh for sure...

I just thought I'd let everyone know that it turned out to be a corrupted dll file.
Thanks for all of your suggestions, though!
