    Ok, this is weird... I noticed today that I couldn't use certain parts of Windows, like viewing the properties of a folder. Then I wanted to use IIS to test a script. The page never started loading.
    So I checked the event viewer and saw that IIS hung each time I started my PC.

    To shorten this story, let met tell you that after having tried about anything, I decided to remove IIS manually since it didn't want to uninstall by itself.
    I removed the first key from the Registry and suddenly everything worked again... The properties of multiple folders, HD's and more suddenly popped up and I could use IIS again...

    This really weird...

    I just hope that everything still works when I reboot my PC

    I never realised that just removing that key could help I guess it was corrupt and got recreated on the next reboot...thanks for that Elledan

    It probably happened because IIS was hung on reading a registry key and once you deleted it, IIS noticed it wasn't there then went on and created the key again from its preference file backups.
