My suggestion is to remove the IIS services using the Control Panel Add/Remove Windows Components applet. After the services have been removed, delete the %SystemRoot%\System32\Inetsrv directory. It may be sufficient to delete the metabase file, Metabase.bin. After you've cleaned things up, re-install IIS using the same Add/Remove Windows Components applet and you should be just fine!
