I started recieving the below error about 300 times a day in my event log right after upgrading from WSS 2.0 to 3.0. WSS 3.0 administration and sites work fine. I checked the services for WSS and none are running as NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM. No other changes have been made and dcdiag comes back with all passed. Once again everything worked fine until the wss 3.0 upgrade. SharePoint Central Administration v3 app pool is running as Network Service, and the only sharepoint site is running as IWAM_SERVERNAME.

No noticable issues except for the event log being filled up with this error.

Haven't confirmed this yet ... but it is looking like WSS 3 is supposed to use .NET 3 and the error messages you are showing are referencing .Net 2 ... could be an issue with the .Net version.

Ok, not sure on the .Net 2 issues ... since they only show up once it might not be an issue.

Have you checked the network configuration on the server?
This appears to be an IP domain reference problem.
Under older versions of the OS this was caused by the DNS suffix not matching the domain reference of the domain controller.

It looks like something did not get installed and is still running from v2.
Have you rebooted since you did the upgrade?

This might help.  http://bloggingabout.net/blogs/mglaser/archive/2006/12/08/Upgrade-TFS-V1-to-WSS-3.0-Guide.aspx
It is a detailed step by step guide to installing wss 3 on a server that already has 2.  It might give you some idea as to what is causing the problem you are having.

Check your add/remove programs ... the errors look like you still have wss 2 or part of it installed.

One last thing to try.
Based on the error that is being reported, SPS 2.0 service is still trying to run ... the error is stating that it cannot access the particular registry setting.

I read that IIS can hold onto some config info so ...
Assuming wss 2 is completely uninstalled.
After removing WSS 3, delete all of the directories associated with SPS from the program files directory
Uninstall IIS, then remove the INETPUB directory ... this should completely remove all references to the app, unless there is something in the registry.

Reboot and then reinstall IIS then WSS 3
(if this works then the errors should be gone after the reboot.)

This is a production server hosting multiple websites, I am unable to uninstall IIS (it would take days to reconfigure). I have allready performed the other steps and that did not work.
