Event ID: 1059 Source: W3SVC

We were receiving this error in our Event Viewer after trying to start the Central Administration application pool:

Source: W3SVC

Event ID: 1059

A failure was encountered while launching the process serving application pool ‘SharePoint Central Administration v3’. The application pool has been disabled.

What I figured out was that the service account I had running was not a member of the IIS_WPG group. Once I added it to the group the application pool started right up.
