We strongly recommend that all users upgrade to Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) version 7.0 running on Microsoft Windows Server 2008. IIS 7.0 significantly increases Web infrastructure security. For more information about IIS security-related topics, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

This step-by-step article describes how to remove the IISLockdown Wizard from a Web server and restore the configuration and settings that were changed when the IISLockdown Wizard was run.
Note that the undo operation may not be successful if you have made changes to the system between the time when the IISLockdown Wizard was originally run and when the undo task is run. Also, note that the Wizard can undo only the changes that the Wizard has made. The Wizard cannot undo manual changes that you have made to the server configuration.
The undo feature uses the log file, Oblt-log.log, that is created at the time Iislockd.exe is originally run. Oblt-log.log is based on the changes that are recorded in the log, but it does not record any unused services that you have uninstalled. As a result, the undo feature does not restore any previously uninstalled services.
