Set "Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) Device Host", in Services to Manual. If it isn't then you will get the errors you are getting. God!, Don't delete anything from your reg. Good luck.

I realize that this is an old thread. Nevertheless it currently comes up at the top of a Google search for 'DCOM service 10005 iisadmin' (which issue also befell my machine), so I thought a reply would be useful. Some of the suggestions for resolution in this thread go well beyond the minimum action needed to stop DCOM's recurring log protests.

The machine on which I had this issue is an HP Media Center PC (m7490n) running Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition with Service Pack 3. The IIS Admin service manages Internet Information Server (World Wide Web Publishing service) and the FTP server (FTP Publishing service). I had all three services Disabled. I set all three to Manual through the Services management tool. The result was that DCOM could start the IIS Admin service, did so, and stopped complaining. The two services I don't choose to run all the time, IIS and the FTP server, were NOT started by DCOM. I can choose to start or stop them at will. Yes, one more unnecessary service is running (IIS Admin). If your machine is like mine, it's only one of dozens out there that are rarely used, and my System log is back to recording useful events.
