sure which is the better group - thanks for reading)

IIS installed on XP Professional - just used the add/remove programs
method and all seemed fine.

Then I attempted to get to http://localhost and the following happened:
1) a cookie got set
2) I was prompted for a username & password (I entered my XP ones)
3) page displayed
error '8002801c'
Error accessing the OLE registry.
/iisHelp/common/500-100.asp, line 17
4) in the address line of the browser, display has changed to

the doc tree looks like this:


I seem to have two files called localstart.asp -one in the above
directory and one in the subdirectory _vti_cnf - the content of these
files when examined using a text editor is vastly different.

I created a new virtual directory called fred mapped to a physical
directory c:\inetpub\wwwroot\fred in which I placed a file index.htm
(containing just a 'hello' line plus obligatory <html> and </html>.

http://localhost/fred/index.htm then retrives this file just great. I
renamed the file to index.asp and visited
http://localhost/fred/index.asp and again the file displayed quite fine.

With this evidence, can anyone sugest where I might look next?

That one was better, and I answered it there. Try not to post the
same question in multiple groups, and if you must, at least crosspost
to the groups so the thread can be across both.
