Recently,the asp.net software i maintained crashed down and can't be opened by the browsers (IE,Firefox and chrome). I tried different kinds of solutions but they don't work. So,i tried the steps below to re-install the web setup package with the error provided as the title of the post.
Culprit: virus attack[dangerous or high risk worm/trojan]
1. Repair windows xp sp2 (using installer cd) XP Repair Install
Note: I performed only steps 1-6
2. After repairing, I uninstalled the IIS
3. Delete the current Inetpub folder in Drive C:\ [make sure to backup any files in the Inetpub folder]
4. Then restart PC after performing steps 2-3
5. Re-install IIS using windows xp sp2 cd
6. Register asp.net 2.0 from command prompt
