    Unable to access localhost


    I am unable to access localhost from my laptop. I am using Windows 2000 and IIS 5.0.

    1. I stop/star/reboot IIS
    2. Check the default setting
    3. One of the message posted talks about adaware affecting IIS. I reinstalled adware as they suggested. However, I am still having the same problem. I am not sure how adware will affect IIS.

    Any suggestions
    Thank you!!!

    What kind of err. msg are you getting in your browser. Its not only adawares? Do you have Anti-Virus? Firewalls? You need to turn those all off, restart IIS, turn on your AV/Firewalls and let those programs know that its ok to access Localhost. If that doesnt work, uninstall IIS. Reboot m/c, make sure u turn off your AV/Firewalls before re-installing IIS. Do so, check if IIS is working and if it is, turn your AV/Firewalls on and repeat the steps above I mentioned.

    Goodluck..
