IIS 4, WWW/FTP Services Keeps stopping

By tigre_269 ·
We were recently infected by the W32/Nimda virus on a couple of our Intranet servers, IIS4/5. After cleaning the virus, we applied the recommended security service patch for IIS4/5. Coincidently, that is when the WWW/FTP services would stop running. The IIS Admin Service stays running, and I am able to restart the WWW/FTP services without incedent, but they only run for a short time. Thanks in advance for your time.

What type of errors in Event Viewer are generated when the services fail?

We had a simular problem when installing the patch. In our case we had Proxy installed and a McAfee Webshield product. In our case the URLscan "patch" caused the problem. What did you use to clean the virus? If you read up on the Nimbda it can access for other problems to come in.
