Unable to open the Web 'http://localhost', FrontPage Server extensions not installed

I am having this ridiculously frustrating problem, migrating an
existing web app to VS.2005.

Initially I was able to successfully convert my VS 2002 app, by opening
the Localhost site using the new 'Local IIS' option (File -> Add
Existing Web Site ->. Local IIS -> Select the Localhost site) and
everything was OK. However, when I shut down and reboot, I was unable
to open the same project and got the following error:

"Unable to open the Web 'http://localhost'. The Web server does
not appear to have the FrontPage server extensions installed. If the
FrontPage Server extensions are installed, this error may occur because
the _vti_bin virtual directory is not marked executable. To correct his
problem, run the Internet Services Manager, select the Web server
having the problem and use the Check Server Extensions task"

I have attempted to resolve this problem using the Internet Service
Manager as the error message suggests, but this creates additional
FrontPage errors, and at the end of the day, I don't want to use
FrontPage for this application.

I have found that if I run the Repair/Reinstall module on the VS 2005
Professional installation disk, and reboot my PC I am able to re-open
my project using localhost, however as soon as I reboot my PC, the
FrontPage error returns.

Repair/Reinstall and the problem goes away, until I reboot. What on is
