Un Installing SQL Server Reporting Server 2005 - The setup failed to read IIsMimeMap table. The error code is -2147023550

I have been facing a severe issue when i try to install SQL Server 2005. SQL Reporting server is already installed in my system and I need to un-install that first and Install SQL Server again.
When I try to un-install Reporting server i got this error:

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

I spent a day to resolve this issue and finally i found a link to do the same. IIS Admin service is the culprit, which needs to be stopped before un-installing the Reporting server.

If you face the same issue, plz follow the steps.
1) Stop IIS Admin Service
2) Stop IIS
3) Uninstall SQL Server Reporting services.

These steps will work like charm and thanks to friend, who helped me in this regard.
