Unable to Get the Private Bytes Memory Limit for the W3wp Process

Issue
You receive the following error in the Windows Event Log:
Event Type: Error Event Source: ASP.NET 2.0.50727.0
Event Category: None
Event ID:   1093
Date:    2/23/2010
Time:    4:37:29 AM
User:    N/A
Computer:   L66R38
Description: Unable to get the private bytes memory limit for the W3WP process. The ASP.NET cache will be unable to limit its memory use, which may lead to a process restart. Error: 0x80070005

Cause
For security purposes, ASP.NET does not have full permission to read the IIS configuration on a server which causes this error to appear. 

Resolution
This error is by design and can be ignored.  It does not affect performance and will only cause ASP.NET process recycling if you specifically customize your IIS settings to restart on certain memory thresholds.
