I am deploying a new ASP.net 3.5 site, that is compiled asp. I have installed it and all seemed well. The site was working, then I noticed someone had put our (unique and individual per site, even have their own app-pool) site Iusr and IWAM accounts in local
admin, I removed them and the site died. getting the error

I saw the post, but no help : http://forums.iis.net/p/1044577/1462371.aspx
I even double checked permissions against this http://support.microsoft.com/kb/812614
I tried running Filemon with the iusr and iwam as admin and then not to compare, but they look almost identical short of the aspx being called.
I also tried C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727>aspnet_regiis.exe -i

Something definitely is permissions related. Enable auditing and see if something is logged in the security event log. Filemon (by sysinternals) can help find registry, file and folder access denied messages.

So I enabled auditing on c:\ and found c:\ and c:\windows didn't have read and needed it, added it back, then I got no errors on files or folders. Then I enabled auditing on the registry, for hklm, and found an issue with the currentcontrolset01 services
iis, changed that, then nothing was coming up in event viewer, fired up filemon again, and saw it now trying to go in files in c:\windows\assembly de-reged the shfusion dll gave iis_wp permission to it and replicated down, re-reged shfusion, ran iisreset,
and it all works, thank god for that.
