Exchange 2003 SP2 Install - Freezes


See attached, I get a frozen screen, (although all other server functions are ok)
When I install Exchange 2003 SP2 on our SBS 2003 Server.

The stopping of the IISADMIN service dring the install freezes the install process,
I can't cancel it... what now, will it damage any files if I re-start the server...?

Any ideas..?
