    What does your permalink options look like? Options > Permalinks.
    You may have some weird setting. Try adjusting the options there.

    /index.php/%year%/%postname%/

    No, nobody can help you. IIS does not do the sort of things needed to do permalinks. The index.php trick is a workaround, but the fault is not with WordPress, it's with IIS.

    Specifically, IIS does not do .htaccess or mod_rewrite.

    Switch to Linux hosting and Apache like the rest of the world. IIS and Windows hosting sucks.

    but i have heard there are a number of solutions for IIS like the 404 custom redirect, but sadly i tried it and its not working for me.
