IISReset.exe is a command-line utility that was introduced in IIS 5.0 that could be used to stop, start, and restart IIS Internet services. Its use is not recommended for IIS 6.0 and is not supported in IIS 7.0 or IIS 7.5.

Note:  Restarting or stopping IIS, or rebooting your Web server, is a severe action. When you restart the Internet service, changes to the metabase can be lost. All sessions connected to your Web server are dropped, and any data held in Web applications is lost. All Internet sites are unavailable until Internet services are restarted. For these reasons, the use of IISReset is not recommended.

For more information about IISReset, see the article "Restarting IIS (IIS 6.0)" at (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=103388).
