In Windows XP the process name for IIS was inetinfo.exe. I don't see it in Windows 7 in the task manager? It seems things have changed. Is it still a separate process?

In Windows 7, w3wp.exe is the process that now responsible for serving the Web sites. Check this out IIS 7 Architecture. By default, there is no Inetinfo.exe process or IIS Admin Service in Windows 7 in fact from Windows Vista onwards.

I had "show all processes to all users" unchecked. Now I see both inetinfo.exe and w3wp.exe. So inetinfo.exe is there. –  Tony_Henrich Mar 18 '10 at 17:19
    
If you have IIS 6 Metabase Compatibility installed only then you will see inetinfo.exe and IISADMIN service. Check this out blogs.msdn.com/vivekkum/archive/2008/05/07/… –  Vivek Kumbhar Mar 18 '10 at 17:29
