Keep Receiving this error when trying to install Sharepoint 2010

I have a Server 2008 Svc PK II in which im trying to installing Sharepoing 2010 on, but each time, keep receiving this error:

The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Launch permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
 to the user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM SID (S-1-5-18) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.

I have read all the blogs on this and articles referencing permission and using Component Services and registry changes but still to no avail, maybe someone else is experiencing this and have found a resolution.  I have tried to run this under several different acconts, to include local admin acct, service acct for Sharepoint and Domain Admin Acct.  Nothing! Error Error Error1

Have you tried uninstalling IIS completely, restarting the server then restarting the install?

I am looking at the configuration error with Application server role.

I founf that somebody had done this on Technet.

are you right clicking the setup file and selecting "run as administrator" when kicking off the install?

that is just trying to install roles which you can do without the installer by going to server manager and adding the application server and web server role. However it sounds like you have a bad windows image install. I would recommend rebuilding this server before proceeding. You are setting yourself up for many issues going down this path
