I'm not sure if TMG works the same way ISA 2006 does, but if so you don't need IIS.
ISA itself listens for wpad requests on the configured port (port 80 normally).

If TMG is the same as ISA then having IIS listen on port 80 would effectively block TMG's autodiscover port.

Try stopping IIS, restarting the TMG services & see if it'll accept requests on port 80.
