Initialization failed after reinstalling Reporting Services 2005

My new SSRS failed after reinstalling it with error

“ReportServicesConfigUI.WMIProvider.WMIProviderException: The report server installation is not initialized.”

Even when I used the Reporting Services Configuration Manager to intialize it, it failed on me.
So how do you fix it? Easy peasy! Go to the Reporting Services Configuration Manager and delete encrypted content and restore the key you backup up and voila. Your SSRS will initialize again.
