I need some help. My Word Wide Web Publishing Service (W3SVC) keeps stopping and I have to start manually.

I am running IIS(version 10.0.19041.1) on Windows 10. My IIS server keeps stopping when the service is stopped.

Internet Information Services

    Hi @Abdurazaaq M

    You can also try this solution to solve the error:

    1. Run -> appwiz.cpl -> Turn windows features on or off -> Uncheck "Internet Information Services" and "Windows Process Activation Service"
    2. Restart your machine.
    3. Run -> appwiz.cpl -> install both "Internet Information Services" and "Windows Process Activation Service"

    @Abdurazaaq M

    Did you get any error message?

    First verify that the World Wide Web Publishing Service is not disabled. The World Wide Web Publishing Service is disabled or missing.

    or you can try to kill the service from administrative command prompt using below command and then restart the IIS.

    Taskkill /F /FI "SERVICES eq W3SVC"

    Are you having the issue on windows 10? I have had it reported and am looking into it it might be related to a windows 10 update.
