After receiving several DCOM error in Event Viewer about permission on various object I decided to amend the  Launch and Activation Permissions of the Key in question. I this case it was IIS Admin Service with the Key {A9E69610-B80D-11D0-B9B9-00A0C922E750} and  IIS WAMREG admin Service with the key {61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1}. However, when I tried to amend I found that all the properties were disabled as seen below


After some Google-ing, I found that there were a couple of registry keys forcing this read-only state.



To change this – right click on the key and choose advanced, and replace the owner as the administrators group


The once this has been done change the administrator’s permissions to full control.


Now re-launch the component service and you should now be able to edit the values
