I have broken OWA.  It was running but in the process of trying to figure out why companyweb would not work, I did something to OWA.  I corrected the password issues in IWAM and IUSR so that I can get to the login screen but after logging in, it comes back with Error 405 - HTTP invalid method.

Followed the steps to download the MetaBase Explorer from Microsoft, did a backup on the configuration database in IIS, deleted the specific folders in IIS, reset IIS, and reset the security permissions AND IT WORKED!  The second article referred me to the first article and the steps were clear, except when it says "Checking the folder security permissions using windows explorer", the next line says "Right-click the EXCHWEB folder, and then click Properties.  Click the Security tab." You really want to click the PERMISSIONS tab.  Since it displays the screens, it was easy to figure out what the really meant.
