Ok, here goes…
I’m running 2003 std SP2, hosting an intranet site on IIS. All goes belly up and IIS won’t host the site anymore. The site works on another server which has no AD install. So here’s the weird thing. I uninstall IIS, .NET and all the extras bla bla. Dump the C:\Interpub folder. I reinstall IIS and bingo, the site is still there! How’s that? How does one fully removed all the leftovers? Many thanks in advance for you help on this one?

You said you dumped the   c:\Interpub      

What about the   c:\inetpub   folder?  

That is where it initially installs the default website in the sub-folder   wwwroot
