How to Stop IIS starting at startup

Hi

Does anyone know how to stop IIS starting at startup? I used to turn it to
Manual in Services in XP, but I cant see it in Services in Vista. The IIS
Control panel just has Start and Stop and I cant find anything about not
starting it at startup.

Thanks

Re: How to Stop IIS starting at startup

You could use a startup batch script.

And use the command:

net stop "World Wide Web Publishing Service"

You can access Services via running MMC (Start ... Run ... MMC) then
Add/Remove snap-ins and add the Services snap in.

As I am not using Vista right now (I really can't be bothered with it these
days - I'll give it another once SP1 comes out, although it is still pretty
disappointing), I cannot check what the best way to run a startup batch
script is, but all you need to do is figure out how to do that, and then use
the command

here are 2 examples of batch scripts that I have made to control services

to start 2 services

@echo off

net start wuauserv
net start Alerter

---to stop them---

@echo off

net stop wuauserv
net stop Alerter

where I have the names of the services you can enter your own...
write this in a notpad, and change the extension to BAT

Try this: Control Panel, Programs and Features, Turn Windows features
on or off. Uncheck the box for Internet Information Services.

Thanks but that just uninstalls it doesn't it? When I want to start it next
time I would have to install it again wouldn't I? Wouldn't there be an
easier way to keep it installed but just not start?

What is the point of this post? It's not only redundant, it's irrelevant
too.

you need to take those meds for your synapse syndrom idiot

LOL I did not expect such an ironic reply. Calm down, and answer the
question. Is there any substance behind all that noise?

Re: How to Stop IIS starting at startup

What is it that you do not want starting? Just websites?

They would only be started if you had started them in the IIS manager
anyway. So if you had disabled them there, they will not be running next
time you startup.

If you want to make sure that non of the websites are running on startup,
and before login, what is wrong with the solution I posted? If you give me
some feedback, I can see if there is a better way. Does this command not
work??

net stop "World Wide Web Publishing Service"

Not much.. but another poster also mentioned this so I just thought to give
an example

hey it was you...

so what is the problem?

Dont you like other people posting? You can make a new newsgroup in google
groups and post alone in there if you want... no one will bother you.

O yeah ... Use for the root in the browser the ip address 127.0.01
instead of localhost.
You will still get the annoying IIS welcome screen ...

Dear Microsoft ... this is bad programming.

Re: How to Stop IIS starting at startup

Well what it is is that I have WAMP server on my machine for Apache/PHP web
development mostly. So when I go to start WAMP it wont obviously because IIS
is slready listening on port 80. So I get annoyed in that I have to go into
the IIS settings to switch it off. I will use IIS occasionally so i dont want
to keep removing and installing it, and I also dont want to keep switching it
off when I want WAMP server. So its really annoying! WAMP has a tray icon I
can just right click to start/stop and I can set it to not run at startup.
Wheras frmo these posts it seems you cant easily stop IIS from running at
startup.

P.S. Off topic... but I posted/read these responses in Windows Mail. I could
only see a couple. So I now am on the Microsoft website reading this thread,
and theres 12 replies. Anyone know why Windows Mail is not showing all these
posts? (I started to see something wrong when the last reply I can see in
Mail made no sense!)

Laurie (or anyone else for that matter), if you are still following this post, Mike Brannigan's answer works perfectly.

Add services as a snap in to mmc, from there you can set iis to start manually, start and stop it and so forth.

On close, save as 'Services' and the next time you want to run it, it will be available in the start menu.

Re: How to Stop IIS starting at startup

Though some answers are adequate in handling the problem, a solution is
not the right titel for either of them.

Click on "My Computer" with teh right mouse button and go to "manage
computer"
Go to "services" and look for "World Wide Web Publishing Service"
Double click on it and change the service to "manual"

Now it will not start up with the boot sequence of the computer.
To gain easy access to the IIS server to activate it, follow these
steps.

Go to the control panel and open "administrative tool"
You will see the "Internet Information Service"
Right click on it and send a shortcut to the desktop.
Place the shortcut in any place you want.

When you want the IIS running, you click the shortcut and start through
the "control panel". The same procedure when you want top stop it. You
will have a smilar functionality as for instance XAMPP.
