IIS service hanging when re-starting

27 10 2011

I’ve been doing some changes on our workflow websites and restarted IIS, however the World Wide Web Publishing service got hung in the status “Stopping” and IIS manager couldn’t force it to restart either.

So if nothing seems to work and you unable to restart your physical server, you can easily force kill the IIS process with the following command in DOS: Taskkill /F /FI “SERVICES eq w3svc”
