WWW Service Missing !!

While not specificaly a exchange issue but could be on a Exchange server.
Had a situation where the WWW service was missing even after re-installing IIS.

Turns out there was a Group policy that changed permissions on the registry and did not allow the install.


  1. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Svchost
  2. Give full control to the administrators group on the SVCHOST key
  3. Un-install WWW service only
  4. Re-install WWW service

Now the service should be there and running
