The setup failed to read IIsMimeMap table. The error code is -2147023550.

I've been facing issues with installation of Reporting service 2005 and making it run but for the first time I faced an issue while uninstalling it. On trying to uninstall I got the following error
"The setup failed to read IIsMimeMap table. The error code is -2147023550"
1. Stop IIS Admin service
2. Stop IIS
3. Uninstall Reporting service.
Successfully uninstalled Reporting service 2005

ASP .Net Service account appears blank

Its been time I got a chance to trouble shoot a Reporting Service Problem, and this time it was on Windows 7. Actually I faced this issue once before and I managed to skip trouble shooting that.
Reading the initial "Program incompatible message" on running the setup of SQL 2005 I came to know that its necessary to install SP3 for SQL 2005 to run on Windows 7. I downloaded it and installed successfully.
On opening (my favorite) Reporting service Configuration tool, I observed that the "ASP .Net Service Account" appeared blank and because of that I was not able to change the Application pool to ReportServer (which is created by default)
Reading few blogs I changed the Application Pool to Reportserver (from DefaultAppPool) using IIS-> Advanced Settings
But still the problem of the ASP .Net service account was lingering.
I ran the following command to get the service account appear in the configuration tool.
aspnet_regiis -ga "NT Authority\NetworkService"
