    Question Inetpub

    I have a file that is called "Inetpub". I have tried SpyBot and even talked
    in great lengths with Norton. I try to delete the file and I cannot. My
    computer says that the folder is not empty. I try to drill down and delete
    folders (all empty) and it won't let me. I drill to far into the main
    directory and eventually it shuts my system down. The file continues to
    grow. When it gets close to talking all my available hard disk I run a
    Norton routine that will get it down to about 4.5 GB, however, no farther. I
    need to let the Norton routine run about a day every 3 weeks. Any ideas or
    suggestions how I can get rid of this dangerous pest?

    Ummm, dude, that folder is a part of IIS. Remove the service from Add/Remove Windows Components and you'll be fine.

    I think RTFM comes to mind.

    I hate to be cruel...no wait...I don't. You really need to crack open a manual at some point, really, you do.
    Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.
