I rebooted one of our servers in the wee hours this morning ... after the reboot I logged in and noticed after several minutes that our Web sites were not back up and running ... I brought up the app log and see this entry:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Service Control Manager
Event Category: None
Event ID: 7023
Time: 11:37:13 AM
The World Wide Web Publishing Service service terminated with the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified.
Which happens each time I try and start IIS. I've searched high and low but cannot seem to find a solution. I've rebooted a couple of times since to no avail.

It sounds liek something has got corrupted. Try restoring your metabase from a backup to see if that has any affect other than taht I would look at a reinstall of IIS.
