    Yesterday everything worked fine on my computer, all my asp.net projects, debugging, browsing localhost aspx pages...
    Then today....

    Started my asp.net project made some code change and tryed to start it in debugging mode...

    Then the crap happens...get the message:

    "Unable to start debugging on the webserver. The underlaying connection was closed. An unexpected error occured on recieve"

    I can se that aspnet_wp.exe is nowhere in the process window. (was there yesterday)
    I have win xp pro and visual studio 2005 installed.
    So the following i have tried:

    IISreset from cmd promt,
    Reinstalled visual studio 2005,
    Reinstalled IE8
    C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_regiis.exe -i

    I am running out of ideeas because the still get the fu*****..error.

    I can see in the evenlog that an error on "aspnet_wp.exe has occured and it
    has stopped unexpectedly".

    I can browse local html pages with IE but not aspx pages.

    Please anybody got some idea.


    Best Regards

    Try to create another clean aspx page without masterpage.

    What error is shown in the browser when you open the aspx page?

    Also you can try with new asp .net website. Is it still the same?

    this problem comes due to auto scanning of antivirus

    Uncheck iis/visual studio processes and services from anti virus auto scan.

    you can learn from here

    So I still dont know what made it happend but now it works again.
    The anti virus program has been running all the time so i dont think that it has anything to do with it.
    Had the same problem if I created a new webprogroject.

    But finally it is fixed after spending many night hours in front of the bloody computer trying to fix it.

    Reinstalled IIS.
    Reinstalled COM+

    Also did the following rundll32 %windir%\system32\inetsrv\wamreg.dll, CreateIISPackage
    regsvr32 "C:\program files\common files\system\ole db\oleaut32.dll"
    regsvr32 "C:\windows\system32\oleaut32.dll"


    Thanks everyone for trying to help.
