I've been unable to install IIS on my Lenovo T410 Windows 7 machine for days now. I check all of the IIS components, as i've always done on my other computers running Windows 7, and the install never completes. The process freezes my computer, which i have to forcefully power-down in other to restart.

I have gone through the files and immediate sub-directories %windir% and %windir%/system32, but i've been unable to find a log with a name like iis.txt.

The system in question here, was just restored to factory settings using the "Blue Button - ThinkVantage".

I suspect it might be some program or service causing the problem. Can someone help me out?

What version of IIS are you trying to install? Have you installed ALL updates offered? If you suspect a program, then remove all installed programs, and keep trying to install IIS until you eliminate that possability. – Ramhound Nov 6 '12 at 20:19
