Unable to start debugging on the web server.

This morning I got the following error when trying to run a project in Visual Studio 2010.

After a bit of digging, I found that IIS was not running on my PC.  I tried using iisreset but it did not start up.

A system reboot was all it took to get IIS cleared up and started without any exceptions.  I will note that a Windows Update had just occurred the night before.
