I'm running IIS6.0 on Windows server 2003.
IISADMIN service and W3SVC service started without any problem but I can't start Default Application pool with following error logged on Event log.
The World Wide Web Publishing Service failed to modify app pool 'DefaultAppPool'. The data field contains the error
Do you guys have any idea about this problem?

Sounds like a permissions issue. Are you using a custom account? I would also try creating a new app pool from the defaults and adjust your site to use the new one.
