Because this took my quite a while I post this answer hoping this wil losave some one time.
The short described solution
I had to close skype before starting the iis
There are many reasons for this error. mostlikely when port 80 is blocked by another software.
Now Skype uses port 80 and if it is started before iis the port of my default website (80) is blocked.
You can check which application is blocking your port by using netstat
or any software which shows you who is occupying which port.
btw. in the case of skype it is using another poirt when 80 is used so you won't have any further problem with this
You can check which process use port 80 or 433, use
netstat -aon | more
command in command promt. You can see Pid (process id). Stop process in Task Manager (find it by id) Than restart IIS. Check this out: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/28609/how-can-i-tell-what-is-listening-on-a-tcpip-port-in-windows/
