ASPNET and IUSR accounts don't exist

I have a new computer and I reinstalled Visual Studio 2003 and I'm having all sorts of problems. The latest is this error: "System.UnauthorizedAccessException" and "ASP.NET is not authorized to access the requested resource" advising me to add the ASPNET account to the website.
However, I can't find the IUSR_MyComputer or ASPNET accounts in my computer's user accounts.
How do I add these back?

The IUSR account is usually created when you install IIS.

The ASPNET account is created when you run aspnet_regiis. If you're using v1.1 of the framework aspnet_regiis should be located at C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_regiis.exe.

C:> aspnet_regiis -i

I ran the "aspnet_regiis -i" from the command prompt and, I don't know why, but not only is the ASPNET account there but the IUSR acct is there too.

So it worked! Thanks!!
