How do I reset IIS 7.5 to factory default in Windows Server 2008 R2 Essentials?   I have no software since it came preloaded on a Western Digital Remote Storage Server.  It's model is Dx4000.

If you regularly do a backup of the IIS Configuration using the AppCmd, you can also restore it to a previous configuration:

To create a backup:
Appcmd Add Backup "IIS Backup name"

To restore a previous backup:
Appcmd Restore Backup "IIS Backup name"

Otherwise the only other way is to uninstall IIS World Wide Web Publishing service, remove the old c:\Inetpub folder and reinstall it.
