Need help disabling the default webpage on server 2008

bankadmin asked
We had an audit and on several of our servers the default website is enabled. How can I disable/turn off this site? I tried to disable the documents for the site and rename the default site and it didnt work. I attached a screen shot of what we need to turn off.

IIS management, stop the default site.  Usually when it is stopped, it will not auto-start the next time.
Make sure you do not need it, you could delete default website.

The other option is to navigate to the site and delete the default.asp or default.htm or which erver page there is.


I did disable the site but it was still coming up. My browser had cached the site. Its disabled now.
