Listen Everyone, I was facing the same problem and what I found on this discussion were only workarounds but there was no one to answer the real cause of this problem.
The real cause of the application pool not starting is that you Application pool account's password has either changed or the password has expired.
First Step findout your application pool UserID
Go to IIS:
Check the Identity Tab for your application pool account(leave those application pools where the app. pool identity is predefined ). In my case my configurable UserID was MOSS and the password of this UserID had expired. In your case the UserID can be different.
Second Step reset the Application pool Userid's password
Goto Active Directory:
Its possible that someone else might have changed the password for MOSS ID, or based on policy password might have expired.
So now change the password for MOSS UserID as it is your application pool ID.
Goto IIS Again:
For ALL application pools go to the identity tab and next to your Application Pool UserID (ie MOSS in my case) write the new password.
Due to some problem the password changed and it is not updated in IIS automatically so IIS is unable to start application pools, start throwing Unspecified Error / Service Unavailable.
