I have always had IIs started by default, but suddenly now i see my default (and only) website is off. i get this message when trying to start it "The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion".

running iisreset via Run > CMD gives me the following

Attempting stop...
Internet services successfully stopped
Attempting start...
Restart attempt failed.
IIS Admin Service is disabled

After a lot of efforts i got the solution.iis was unale to start becuse the two other services was stop one was world wide web publishing and other was event log.

Get the location controlpanel > Adminnistrative tools > Services

First start the event log service
then start the world wide web publishing service

now start the iis either from command prompt - open command prompt type - iisreset > Enter
direct from Control Panel >Administrative Tools > Internet Information Services > Default Websites(right click) > start.

Thank you.
