try these steps:

Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type Dcomcnfg.exe, and then click OK.
In the Distributed COM Configuration Properties dialog box, click Edit Default on the Default Security tab under Default Access Permissions.
In the Registry Value Permissions dialog box, click Add.
In the List Names From list, click the Domain selection that you want.
In the Names list, click SYSTEM (the operating system), and then click Add.
In the Type of Access list, click Allow Access, and then click OK twice.
Under Default Launch Permissions, click Edit Default.
In the Registry Value Permissions dialog box, click Add.
In the List Names From list, click the Domain selection that you want.
In the Names list, click SYSTEM (the operating system), and then click Add.
In the Type of Access list, click Allow Launch, and then click OK twice.

if those solution didn't work, you have serius problem with your system. your system must be crashed so you need to recover your operating system. I have found some web pages that will be useful for recovery:
