Can you access it via:

Right click on my computer --> Manage --> Services and Applications --> IIS

have you used IIS on the server yet? maybe try removing it and re-adding it.

ONLY do this is IIS isnt being used by anything.....
-click start, run and type in: mmc
-press enter
-click on file>add/remove snapin
-click Add
-Select "Internet Information Systems Manager (IIS)"
-Click Add
-Click close
-Click Ok

Does it open now?

You need *local* admin rights to have access to IIS.
