Greetings:
We have just upgraded our server to IIS v6 on windows 2003 sp2 server.
We would like to exclude certain folders from indexing under wwwroot folder.
We added some folder to the exclusion and it does not work.
Can anyone tell me what the steps are to exclude certain folder from indexing.
Thanks.

I remembered that I have seen something about this in the past: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Web_Servers/Microsoft_IIS/Q_21722087.html

In short registry is the answer:
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\ContentIndex\Catalogs\
  MainIndex
    Scopes
      X:\www\yyy\zzz                                   REG_SZ   ,,5
