How to Restore Default Error Pages in IIS7

Well it happend to me today, I accidently deleted the Error page 403!

It says inherited, so I tried to find how I can inherite from the top site, no luck. I even removed HTTP Errors and luck
I manually created 403, its "Entry Type" was set "local" and I got 500 error when I try to open the site.

Finally I looked at the web.config

howa,,,there it is

I removed it, and refreshed the
I got my 403 back!

That was dumb, but I am glad it is fixed!

I have followed your steps for Default Web site where I had local for 404 as I had problem there. I have closed and reopened IIS but of no use. Should I have to restart the system.?
