If no anonymous access to IIS services is required, disable the IUSR_computername account.

To track PC/IP info you need to setup auditing.

Thanks for the prompt response.

Disabled IUSR_x, now to wait for complaints from users or logs.

How do I know that IUSR was the avenue Anonymous used?

What kind of Audit Policy do you suggest for JoeUser *?
* Name changed to protect the suspected innocent.

Here is a little article that discusses the IUSR account that could help
Understanding anonymous authentication and the IUSR account.
http://www.macromedia.com/support/ultradev/ts/documents/anonymous_authentication.htm

The most important items to audit would be
Audit logon events - success and failure
Audit account logon events - success and failure
Audit account management - success and failure

The results of the audit can be viewed in the Security log of the event viewer.
