IIS can not run

by kwokwai -space4english / March 5, 2005 2:36 AM PST

My PC is running with WINDOW XP SP1. Recently, I installed the IIS component, and when I try to type http://localhost, the computer becomes corrupted, and cannot read any ASP progamming.

I wonder if viruses have caused this matter!

The stock IIS install and stock settings do allow pests and more to invade the machine.

A good thing to stay away from, every script kiddy in the universe must know about it. Apache better.

Don't use IIS

Use something a little more secure, like Apache. There's even an ASP module for it if you really want, though you might think about using PHP or even better, Ruby on Rails if you want to write web apps.

They're cross platform and tend to be much more browser agnostic than ASP.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
