    Did you install IIS? You do that by going to control panel-add remove programs-add remove windows components

    I looked under services and I see IISAdmin. Does that mean IIS is installed? Not sure on my end. And when I type localhost in my browser, I get "Action Cancelled" message.

    What am I missing here?

    Thanks

    Before anybody replies to my previous post - I found out that World Wide Web Publishing Service has a status of 'starting' instead of started. How can I get it running ? Any help ?

    Try this:

    Open services and stop the WWW service
    Set the WWW service to Manual startup
    Reboot
    Once your computer is rebooted, open services
    Restart the WWW service
    Tell your firewall software it's OK that WWW is a service.
