I installed Microsoft IIS web server from the program Features recently to play around with, but don't want it running at all times for now. Every time I reboot and login to Windows it automatically start the IIS server, is there a way to stop this from happening and only run it when I want?

  • Press the Windows Key + R
  • Type in services.msc
  • Scroll down the list toward the bottom, looking for the "World Wide Web Publishing Service" (actual service name is W3SVC), (Description is: Provides Web connectivity and administration through the Internet Information Services Manager)
  • When you find it, select "Manual" from the combo-box, and click the Apply and / or OK button
  • That'll stop it from starting on boot. If you want it to stop right now as well, click the "Stop" button before closing that dialog window

Shhh.. dont tell anyone, but we also have a private forum area with the really good stuff, see?
