IUSR_machine name Account Win2000

By seanrobw ·
I am working with a web application that requires the IIS Anonymous User Account (IUSR_machine name) to read a specific key on the registry. Currently I have promoted that account to the power users group. I would like to find a way to create a userwith specific rights to read a registry key to instantiate a COM object without giving the user power user status? Any ideas would be appreciated.

IUSR_machine name Account Win2000

Run REGEDT32, navigate to and highlight the key, and select Permissions from the Security menu. You can assign read permission to the IUSR account just for that one key.

I hope this helps.
