Iisreset /noforce times out in exchange 2007 and exchange 2010

On a lot of Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2010 installations, I get timeout when running:
 "Iisreset /noforce" 
You can just run the command againg, and if it times out, run it once more, untill it completes.
BUT it's annoying and you have to monitor the command, to make sure IIS is not down more that necessary.
So I have begun just to run it as follows:
"iisreset /noforce /timeout:600"
 10 minutes is usually enough time, for iis to restart :-)

Timeout error:
Attempting stop...
Restart attempt failed.
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion. (2147943453, 8007041d)

  1. Jack and John are brothers and my friends. Once they applied for help to me. Their MS Exchange data was crashed on unknown reason, but I advised them one utility. In some time they were very glad and brought a case of beer. To my way of thinking this tool might help in this question easily - exchange server 2007 recovery.
