I have the exact same problem. I just installed my system again this
weekend, from an XP SP1 integrated installation CD (I got it with my
notebook). I installed IIS, .NET, all updates from Windows Update. And then
this happens, a myriad of different errors from IIS, which can be traced
back to COM+.

I cannot event open the Component Services, because COM+ System Application
dies right away. Starting the service results in the same error.

I can not view any pages and the default is in the WWWROOT folder.
