I have an asp application running in asp
Everything works fine while the IUSR account is in the Administrators group
But when I take it out of the Administrators group asp pages wont run
I have set "full control" on all the website folders for the IUSR account

Any idea how to solve the problem?

    Make sure the IUSR account also has read permission on the root directory of the drive, write permissions on the c:\WINNT directory, and read & execute permission on the System32 directory and Inetserv directory.
