Hi there,

If you need to know the name of your computer, right-click My Computer on your desktop and choose Properties. Switch to the Computer Name tab and you'll see the name of your computer listed under Full computer name.

That's the name you should append to IUSR_ to give IIS the required permissions to write to the database.

Hope this helps, and if not, let me know.
