Re: Local ASPX pages won't diaplay - IE and Firefox ask to open or save file
It sounds like you may need to repair your IIS mappings.
Here are the details on how to do that:

Re: Local ASPX pages won't diaplay - IE and Firefox ask to open orsave file
ASP.Net 3.5 is an extension to ASP.Net 2, that's why you will see ver.
2 displayed in IIS. That's not a cause to panic.
Check in IIS whether it is handling ASPX pages. I think you will find
it in the extensions section. Orr's article is short and sweet, and it
even gives you a very likely cause.
I hope your situation is remedied. I would have installed windows
afresh by now. That's my solution to most system trouble.
