I know that iusr_machinename account is replaced with iusr account in IIS 7.0
What about iwam_machinename account? i could not find it on windows server 2008 machine. Is it removed or replaced with any other account?

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That said, the IWAM account has been replaced by normal service accounts.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.
