What does W2K Everyone account do and can I remove it?
Posted on 2006-11-17
Hi, I'm putting up a web server and will host a web site for experience and fun. I use Windows 2000 Advance Server, IIS 5 and Access database on my C drive. Now I have 2 questions about security:
1. it is said that you should store your database on a different drive for security. Is it really helpful? (My D drive has no OS installed).
2: I went to the properties of both my c and d drive. On the security tab. There's only one user: Everyone. And he is given full control. If I remove this user, does it mean IUSR_computerName can't access my web page even if I add him on the security tab and assign him read & Execute permission. And will administrator be able to do his job if I add him and give him full control.
In fact, what exactly is this Everyone thing?
