    Well, what do you mean by open?
    And I did not recreate the directories because shouldn't it just get to the default start page? I believe it is called iisstart.asp or something like that.

    Open?

    IIS must be running before it can serve any pages. So check your services (settings-->configurations-->system management --> services) and see if IIS is running.

    You should get a default help-page or so, unless you removed the files or din't include them when you installed windows ...

    Create a new site.
    (settings-->configurations-->system management --> internet information server --> rightclik on default-websites -->new virtual directory) Then just run through the wizard and choose a siename (say 'test') and browse to directory with a html file or so in it.

    After completing the wizard. Open a browserwindow and type in
    http://localhost/test/filename.htm

    If you are using IE, goto tools > options > advanced > browsing > and uncheck show friendly HTTP errors

    That may shed more light on your problem...

    Ok, I've decided that re-installing IIS for the fourth time may help. Just to make sure that I don't *accidentally* make a mistake could someone please give me a very precise list of steps to follow.

    I wish I could get up to the your stage

    I can't even install IIS. It like freezes every single time at the end when it is "Completing configuration of SMTP server". Exactly how long does it take to install? And if you disabled any services via > services.msc, do I have to enable certain ones to install IIS?

    It takes like 10 minutes for me, and I'm pretty sure that once IIS is installed for you it will automatically restart all services it requires.
