IIS setup - Web site running under wrong account?

Last Modified: 2013-11-19
I seem to be having some security issues with a new Web server that I am setting up as a replacement for a current server.
The new server is Windows Server 2008 SP2 32bit.

I added a line of code to both the Old server, and the New server.
 lblUserName.Text = System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent().Name

On the old server,  the returned value is NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE  
On the new server, the returned value is mylocaldomain\myusername

I have only a slight understanding of how IIS is setup.
What do I need to look at in order to have the web site run under the Network Service account?
