I know the steps for adding the Host Name Headers. My problem is that its giving me error again and again changing Advanced Settings for Host Headers. It doesnt allow me to add new host header, neither to edit current one. Always prompting me that "The header
is invalid.". It happens for all websites hosted on that server.

Then check this Microsoft Support article
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/828726 and hotfix
for case sensitivity and verbs for http.sys are the problem.
You might try a back-up the current hosts file and then create a new one to eliminate
the possiblity that the file contains invalid characters or hidden characters.

Its not the case. I think there is problem with IIS and I need to remove it and install it again... Hope this will sort out the problem...

Yes it maybe you have a corrupt metabase which is causing the issues.
