Default Where is my IUSR Account?

Hi All

I wonder if someone can help. I have recently formatted my PC and re-installed IIS and today have gone to connect to an Access database via ASP without success.

For some reason I don't seem to have an IUSR account on my PC anymore!!... does anyone know how to install one or have a remedy as to why I wouldn't have.

... is it because my PC has been set up with a Workgroup rather than a domain?

I am using XP pro.

Many thanks

It doesn't matter really whether or not an IUSR account was created automatically when you installed IIS. All you have to do is ensure that the anonymous account (which, although usually is the IUSR account, can be any account), has the right permissions.
In the IIS Manager Snap in, open up the properties for your website, and in the Directory Security tab, click "Edit" on the Anonymous access and authentication control section, then select a user account that has the permissions you want.

BTW, workgroups and domains don't really come into it.
