IIS HTTP Error 503 - [Solution]

Problem

Recently I was (re)setting up IIS from scratch on my development machine and kept getting HTTP Error 503 whenever I would try to load up a local web page.

For reference, in my case it's IIS version 8.5, running on Windows 8.1 Enterprise 64-Bit, but that really shouldn't matter.

Looking in the Windows Event Viewer shows:

Auto login after PC is locked?

OK this may sound like a weird thing to want to do. If you have a PC that has no password associated with it and you lock it all you do is click back in and you don't need to enter in a password. Well I have built a home theater PC and I have it joined to my Domain so it has to have a password because it's a domain user. I created a policy preference and associated it to the PC that will create the registry key's that will allow this pc to log in automatically. But what I'm wanting is to lock the machine and not need to enter in the password to unlock it.

How to remove programs from "Open With" list in Windows?

I have a frustrating problem, I have multiple versions of Photoshop installed on my computer (Windows 7) and I already had Photoshop CS5 added to my "Open With" menu and now that I have CS6 installed I can't add THAT one to my "Open With" menu instead! I've tried using the browse button and selecting the CS6 version but it keeps adding it as the CS5 version. Is there some way to edit the Open With menu so I can replace the CS5 version with the CS6 version? I need to keep CS5 on my computer for the time being or else I'd just uninstall it and I'm sure it'd be no problem then.
