IIS 7 HTTP only

Last Modified: 2014-09-03

I have a windows 2008R2 Web server running around 20 websites and one running https with a ssl cert. One local IP.
however if I run one of the http websites with https in the url, I get the HTTPS "nag" but it still loads the https site, I want to "force" the http sites to only run http or just show a "page can not be displayed" error if someone puts https in the URL instead of going to the https site.

I have URL rewrite installed in IIS but can not find a rule to force http anywhere, there are plenty to force https.
