    Hello all,
    I have been working with Cookiegal for some time now. She mentioned that we have moved into an area that is outside of her field of expertise. I seem to have a corrupted metabase in IIS. I had a look at this link http://www.iisfaq.com/Default.aspx?tabid=2910 and, as outlined on that page, I ran the command cscript adsutil.vbs enum from inside the C:\Inetpub\Adminscripts folder and it did return the error -2146893792 (0x80090020). I understand from this that I do need to restore the metabase. I don't know how to ascertain if there is a backup or not. There are a couple of other system event errors upon rebooting that I'd like to eliminate as well. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling IIS but there are problems writing encryped files and the errors persist. Thanks in advance for any comments or suggestions that may help me to get rid of those errors. If you know how to search and find my other thread in these forums you can view the various errors that I have ben talking about with Cookiegal.

    For the benefit of anyone who stumbles upon this thread, I solved the problem completely by following the steps on this Microsoft Help Page: http://support.microsoft.com/?id=271865 My system had been compromised by a backdoor trojan which likely hosed my metabase.bin file.
