404.4 error suddenly appeared on Windows 7

I'm running 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate SP 1.

My IIS has suddenly started giving errors processing various files - for example .png or .gif or .jpg or .css.

When I look at the page in Chrome I can see a number of files failed to load - under the resources tab there are red errors and clicking on the error reveals 404.4 errors:

The resource you are looking for does not have a handler associated with it.

Module      IIS Web Core
Notification      MapRequestHandler
Handler      Not yet determined
Error Code      0x80070002

http://localhost:80/mywebsite/App_Themes/Blue/images/pixel.png

Under most likely cause it says

The file extension for the requested URL does not have a handler configured to process the request on the Web server.

However I do have a static file handler set, with the following settings:

Name: StaticFile
Request Path: *
Executable: C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\aspnet_isapi.dll
Mapping: file or folder
Verbs: All verbs
Access: Read

I've tried running aspnet_regiis -i to reset iis but it hasn't had any effect.

I have no idea what caused the problem unfortunately. It seemed to happen about the time when I was investigating an error with 0 bytes getting sent to the webserver from a webpage, why that would affect it I can't imagine.

If it helps - entering in separate static file handlers for each file type I want to process seems to work, so this can be a workaround for now, but obviously I'd like to get to the bottom of what has happened.

I have no idea what happened - but adding a new static file handler fixed the problem.
