Try to set the Iisadmin service to manual, instead of auto this should solve your problem.

If I set it to manual then everytime the server restarts I have to start the service again. Isn't there another solution.

The dcom or the web server will cause it to start anyway, just setting to manual does not mean you will have to start it manually you will not, another service will start it because it is dependant on it.
