Default COM Interop Access to the registry key denied

Hi, i created a component in .net 2.0 , theres a portion in the component that reads some stuff from the win32 registry

i tested this component in another desktop application dev. in 2.0

eventually this component was to be used in ASP 3 via COM interop

when I call the component methods i get the following error:

Error Type:
mscorlib (0x80070005)
Access to the registry key 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\*****' is denied.

any idea? this works fine from any other .net App

access to registry is restricted because the default settings for the ASP account IUSR_ServerName does not have access privileges to access the registry, if the account security is increased to administrator then this works.

but the problem is that i cant change the privileges for the IUSR_ServerName account for the production server.

can anyone help to run com interop COM under a different account ? the COM is registered using regasm
