How to install Internet Information Services 7.5 on Windows 7 64-bit machine with ESET

Recently I had to install IIS (Internet Information Services) 7.5 on a Windows 7 64-bit machine which also had ESET antivirus / ESET Smart security installed.  This seemed like a straight forward job and assumed it would take a few minutes to complete. To install IIS on a Windows 7 machine follow the steps given below

  • Open Control Panel
  • Click on `Turn Windows Features on or off` link. This will display all the features available in the machine as shown below. You need to be logged in as an Administrator to be able to add or remove windows features

  • Click the checkbox with `Internet Information Services` next to it.
  • Finally click the OK button

Windows 7’s ‘GodMode’

By creating a new folder in Windows 7 and renaming it with a certain text string at the end, users are able to have a single place to do everything from changing the look of the mouse pointer to making a new hard-drive partition.

To enter “GodMode,” one need only create a new folder and then rename the folder to the following:

GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Once that is done, the folder’s icon will change to resemble a control panel and will contain dozens of control options which is a handy way to get to all kinds of controls.

The trick is also said to work in Windows Vista, although some are warning that although it works fine in 32-bit versions of Vista, it can cause 64-bit versions of that operating system to crash.
