  1. The IIS based websites throw error 500 when browsing. Each website on the service node is affected.

  2. Each second the IIS related errors appear in Event Viever (Event Viewer > Windows Logs > Application):

    Could not load all ISAPI filters for site 'EXAMPLE.COM'.  Therefore site startup aborted.


    The HTTP Filter DLL D:\ISAPIFilter\isapi_redirect.dll failed to load.  The data is the error.
