I'm using VS2010 Express with SP1 on XP Pro SP3. I have a web development site on a local drive that was running fine under IIS Express a few days ago. Now when I launch under IIS Express, IIS Express goes up to 50% CPU usage and doesn't come down, eventually freezing the machine for at least several minutes (at which point I do a hard PC restart). The site works fine under the VS Development Server (Cassini). Under IIS Express the page call is
I made two changes recently that might have affected things. 1) I made a copy of the site for operations testing and got it to run under IIS 5.1. Then I pointed IIS 5.1 at the development site, and got it to run; works fine. 2) I renamed the folder that the development site was in, and then could not figure out how to get VS2010 Express to recognize it on the start page; but I got past that.

I tried looking at the IISExpress folder config files xml however I can't find documentation to tell me what I might do with them.
Any suggestions on how to get IIS Express back up and running properly on my development site would be appreciated.
