Forget the Password for IUSR?

I was changing around the Directory Security for an ASP.net page. In the process of doing this, the IUSR account was removed. After fixing the problem, I wanted to set the Anonymous Access for the website back to IUSR. Unfortunately, I needed the password for the IUSR account in order to do this.

WindowsITPro has a great solution posted for retrieving the username and password information for IUSR.

Just in case that link ever goes down, here is the solution: Take the following code, save it in NotePad as a .vbs file and run it.

Worked like a charm
