IIS 7.5 bindings and deleted sites

Within IIS 7.5 there was a site with an SSL cert that was created, used briefly, and then deleted. It no longer shows-up in the IIS 7.5 sites list. But after deleting that site when we try to create a new site and bind the IP address that was previously used for the now-deleted site it states that the binding is in use by another product/service on the machine (or something to that effect) and when we try to bind the IP address to a new site using HTTP instead of the previously used HTTPS that the now-deleted site used and connect to that with a web browser it pulls up a page that states that the user 'tried to access newsitename.com but instead reached olddeletedsitename.com ...'  or something to that effect.  It is as if the hold SSL site was deleted from IIS 7.5 but the site or previously used configuration settings still exist somewhere (registry perhaps ??).  Is there any reason for this to be happening or any other place that should be looked at to delete all remnants of the previously used IIS 7.5 HTTPS site ??  TIA for any help on this confusing issue ...

It almost sounds to me that you are using the same port for SSL with that IP and that is why you are seeing the error.  

Can you send me a screenshot of what your IIS looks like without compromising your security?

Okay, thanks - I do not have access to the machine, but I will see what I can find out on that ...

Thanks for the reply, and you were apparently correct on this - I am not really sure how this works but my associate said that he 'unbound' the IP address and SSL certificate from a command prompt (even though it appeared to have been deleted from the IIS Admin console) and that seemed to resolve the issue.  Thanks for your help on this as given how I am a bit rusty with IIS these days this was a tough one ...
