The red x on each of the folders you mention are normal and are the result
of the IIS/WWW services starting prior to exchange.
Most people ignore them, as they are only cosmetic.  

If they really annoy you...

You could stop/start the default web site, then view the properties of each
folder and the red x will disappear until the next reboot.

Or you could change the dependencies of the services for startup. 
Save following to a reg file and run on the exchange server:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


See the following KB for more information:
