I managed to find an answer to my own question after digging through numerous sources.
I found this on https://answers.microsoft.com/zh-hans/windows/forum/all/when-i-start-windows-process-activation-service-i/3256b997-74be-451b-8ec9-4dbe3af94638. I tried it and it worked!1. Find a normal computer(WAS Service is running), backup "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WAS", then back to your computer.2. run cmd in Admin Mode, run"sc delete WAS".3. run "sc create WAS binpath="c:\windows\system32\svchost.exe -k iissvcs" DisplayName="Windows Process Activation Service" type=share error=normal start=delayed-auto depend=RPCSS".4. Restore the registry with your backup.5. Start WAS Service!
