There is no need for IWAM in IIS7.  The ASP.NET process account handles these functions.  If you haven't changed the account, the default is NETWORK SERVICE

I don't think that account is used.
By default the application pool uses the Network Service account which is used to running code, which is what the IWAM_ account was used for.

That said, the IWAM account has been replaced by normal service accounts.  Network Service being the default, Local Service and Local <something> are also available defaults if you look at the logon screen in the application pool configuration.   You can also over-ride these with any local or domain account.

The functions serviced by the IWAM account in previous versions of IIS is now handled entirely by the Network Service account.
