How about a simple hello.asp? doesn't looks like IIS standard asp error msgs.

If you are using Vista build, you need to make the following change to see the error message.
1) Internet Option:
uncheck "Show friendly HTTP error message" check box
2) IIS Settings:
cscript %systemdrive%\inetpub\adminiscripts\adsutil.vbs set w3svc/AspScriptErrorSentToBrowser true
(to allow error message send to client)

by default, IIS 7 (ASP) does not send errors to the browser. Enable the setting and see what error is displayed. Also, make sure classic asp is installed.

this error when iis don't send error details to your browser.
U can change value of "Send error To Browser" in IIS Manager/ Asp
And then, restart IIS, refresh your browser to view your error details and fix it

Check your permissions. For a quick fix you can usually go to your website in IIS.
Control Panel, Administrative tools, IIS,expand the server, expand the websites and right click on your web site, Properties, Directory Security, Authentication and Access Control, Press edit and use an id with higher authority.
I dont personally like to do this but it will usually get things working in a pinch and then you can see if you have a conflict with another application or setting as previous posts are trying to find.
I have run into problems with installing Share Point Services on the server and had to back it out and install it on a separate server until I learn how to manage it properly.
Hope this helps, at least in the short run.

You will get the above error on windows 2008 even if you have set CustomErrors=Off in the web.config file .
To get the actual error on the remote machine or remote browsers
Double click on the website in IIS 7.x.
Double click asp.
Double click debugging properties option and set send Errors to browser equal to True and click apply.
Double click on the website.
Double click error pages.
Click Edit feature settings.
Check the radio button “Detailed Errors” and click ok.
Perform these steps and you will get actual error.
