comment What are possible drawbacks of an IIS 7 site having an NTFS junction as a web root?
That's a great question, I've been looking for an answer to that for a long time. All I've ever seen is either a rolling deployment under a load balancer (which I don't have) or a simple copy/svn of files into the webroot (which I don't like).

The "extra work and scripts involved" is not a concern, we are fully automated

That network operation would cause the site's artifacts to be in a state of ambiguity far too long. That's the exact situation I'm trying to avoid. I'm trying to eliminate the time where assemblies under the webroot are of different versions.

comment Windows Event Log service won't start - how to figure out cause
Thanks for the tip on process monitor, I was able to see that it was looking for a registry key that doesn't exist and created the key with the value it was looking for. Perhaps a screwy windows update changed something. The key used to be found at HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\services\eventlog\ServiceDll but I had to create it at HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\services\eventlog\Parameters\ServiceDll for it to work.

comment Windows Event Log service won't start - how to figure out cause
I don't know what you mean by your first suggestion of "Rt-Click on a particular windows event log and select properties. Look at the path that the logs are writing to." The event viewer won't run because the event log doesn't run. Sure there are a bunch of files in C:\Windows\System32\winevt\Logs but looking at those files does me no good, their permissions seem fine. The "path to executable" of the service is there and permissions seem fine.
