    You have powershell or some Exchange MMC open or you just installed a .net update perhaps

    Close all the open sessions you may have or reboot the server and start again!

    Did you reboot and try again? Any other users logged on to that server? Was an update applied before this?

    use this guide to find what service or process is that ID:
