Check in C:\Windows\System32\Inetsrv and you'll find a 'History' folder. Within here - hopefully - you'll find fairly recent backups of the Metabase.XML and MBSchema.XML objects. Before doing the following - be sure to backup the existing Metabase.xml and MBSchema.xml from C:\Windows\System32\Inetsrv first.

Now, rename a recent backup from the 'History' folder - renaming a recently Metabase.XML object, and then a recent MBSchema.XML object. Copy / Paste each of these to the C:\Windows\System32\Inetsrv.

Now do a IISRESET from a command prompt.

Hopefully this will get you back to where you need to be.
