Exchange 2007 OWA doesn't load properly.

I can hit the domain https://mail.x.com/owa, but none of the boxes load except for text. I've included the screen shot of it.

Also, it does prompt me for user/password before I get to this screen. Then when i click OK, the buttons don't load again and everything is scrambled.

Any help?

Why dont you try restarting your IIS service?  I've had funky things happen when IIS is not cooperating.

Yes, I restarted IIS and I restarted all the services after applying all the SP1 Roll up patches

Nothing yet.

I still have nothing working on OWA. Every link just goes https://mail.x.tv/owa/#

None of the graphics load for IE or FireFox

nothing.

You may have to repair the IIS metabase or recreate the virtual directories.  This link should prove useful for this process.

Well the problem "appears" to be with IIS metabase / virtual directories.  Admittedly, I have made the assumption here that you're using Server 2003 as the OS.  This being the case, that process of rebuilding the virtual directories and clearing the metabase are somewhat independent of Exchange version you are using.

Can you check if a rollup was recently applied to the Exchange server? Try to access OWA from IE and paste the relevant portion of your IIS log when you attempt to access OWA.
