Sample Asp pages as well as custom hand-coded asp pages all just time-out eventually. Most of the time if you refresh the page you will eventually get a weird " Error 500-12 Application Restarting". Which will not go away.. Even if just trying to pull up the default localstart.asp pages. Upon trying to stop/start IIS services & WWW Pub services I get an "Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request.." on the WWW Pub service and then am forced to restart the entire machine! I'm on Win2k Pro SP2 with April 10th security roll-up package and that's it and IE 6 with all updates. <BR><BR>I have tried setting IUSR_machinename to Full Control for the file & directories involved with to no avail. <BR><BR>Please Help!!
