SBS 2003 Premium Default Website

Ok I am at the end of my rope with this...
I recently had to restore my SBS box from NTBACKUP, and now the default website,(with OWA, OMA, RWW), and the  companyweb sites will not start in IIS (6) due to error "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process" ... I am using pretty much out of the box defaults, with ISA 2004 configured. Default uses ports 80 and 443,and companyweb is using 80 and 444. Everything worked great prior to a drive failure that required the restore from backup.

I have ran the Connect to the Internet Wizards and  followed about a zillion threads and articles on this starting with this one:

I receive paired errors in the event log each time I try to start the websites:

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      HTTP
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      15005

Unable to bind to the underlying transport for The IP Listen-Only list may contain a reference to an interface which may not exist on this machine.  The data field contains the error number.
