    Hi guys, anyone here knows how to fix the error above? I'm using IIS 6, the websites folder has a mark of x colored red and all of the websites in it are not accessible. When I'm attempting to start it,  IIS is responding slow and the error will show. I have read some other forums already and tried them as well but no luck. I hope you can help me with this. Super thanks!

    By the way, I checked the Services and found out the W3svc is not running tried to start it but another error appeared "Could not start the World Wide Web Publishing Service service on Local Computer." Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start". I check the dependency of this service but all of them are running.

    Hi,

    Maybe you forget to install Windows Process Activation Service via Programs and Features controls panel. Please check it and restart server.
