    I suggest that do the following:

    1.      On the SBS Server, click Start -> Run, type "dcomcnfg" and click OK.
    2.      Expand Component Services\My Computer\DCOM Config.
    3.      Right click "IIS WAMREG admin Service", select Properties.
    4.      Go to the Security tab, click the Edit button of "Launch and Activation permissions".
    5.      Add Network Service with Local Launch and Local Activation permissions
    6.      Click OK to exit.

    If the issue still exists, please do the following:

    1.      Click Start -> Run, type REGEDIT and click OK.
    2.      GO to HKey_Classes_Root\CLSID\{61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1},
    right click {61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1}, select Permissions.
    3.      Compare the security settings there with other good computers to make
    sure all the necessary entries are added.
