  1. The web server in my IIS has the Default web site stopped. When I hit start, I get an error message
    there was an error while performing this operation.
    the process cannot accdess the file because it is being used by another process. (Exception from HRESULT: 0X80070020)
    The site bindings are:
    :*:57772 (http),*:443 (https), 808:*(net.tcp), *(net.pipe), locathost (net.msmq), localhost (msmqformatname)
    Can anyone point out what is wrong?

    That error is saying
    1) one program (process) as a file open
    2) another attempted to modify or delete it

    A most common case is when a process is running and the current directory is \temp\foo\bar

    and some process is attempting to delete foo
