Restore Default Error Pages for site in IIS7

Can the default error pages be restored for a site in IIS7
The 500 error for asp pages was changed in the default website which afected all the websites.

I tried to fix the specific site I am working on and deleted the custom 500 error page that was there, amd changed it to
 which is the same as the rest bar the number at the end and in Entry Type is says Local instead of inherited.  

I have set it to show detailed error messages, but when I hit an error on a page all I get is:

The page cannot be displayed because an internal server error has occurred.

Cheers but managed to figure it out.  
If you make a change manually it creates a web.config file in the directory of the website.  
Once I deleted that file it went back to default settings.
