<Handlers> section locked at a parent level when attempting to run web app in IIS 7.0

Hi experts,

I have an asp.net  web application that runs fine when I run it
on IIS in Windows XP and IIS on Windows 2003 both of which '
I believe are version 6.0.

The problem is that when I try to run it on windows 7 I get an
error in the configuration file at the <handlers> tag and the
explanation is that "the section is locked at a parent level".

Can somebody please tell me how to unlock the section hopefully
without me having to read an entire manual (though I generally
have no particular aversion to reading).

Thanks
