I have been unabled to remove the iisadmpwd folder under c:\windows\system32\inetsrv. I have removed all references from the metabase.xml file. I brought the server up in safe mode, removed the folder, but upon reboot, the folder comes back. It is empty. When I try to remove the folder in normal mode, it says the folder is in use, even when all IIS services are stopped. Nothing in the registry either. Can anyone tell me how to remove this folder permanently?
