Depending on the windows server version, you may be able to disallow .NET by
going in to the IIS Manager, clicking on the Web Service Extension link to
bring up the extensions in the right handle panel. Choose the .NET option
and click the 'PROHIBIT' button.
Another option may be to use GREP and search/replace to change all the
instances of the word COM
