    Well, I can see two options from here :

    - you still have the page in your browser cache (maybe you'll have to close the browser to effictively empty the cache, or the safest test would be to access to the webserver from another workstation)

    - you're accessing to another webserver that the one you've removed the default website.

    I mean Just stopping the default website should be enough to return a 404 error when you try to access it instead of the 'iisstart.htm' page.

    How do you access this webserver (locally/remotely - with a DNS alias or an IP address)? Do you have multiple websites running on it? Can you give us more details on your configuration?

    Hi,

    Maybe there is some redirect in your configuration files. Please check applicationhost.config and web.config files. And I suggest that you can access http://yourIP/iisstart2.htm (wrong name) via IE browser and enable detailed error messages in IIS to check if the physical path is as you exprect.
