IIS accounts added to user rights assignments

I am working on a 2003 SP 2 server and checking user rights assignments.  IIS 6.0 is running on the server.  Does IIS added accounts such as the IUSR_Machine user to certain user rights in local security policy?  It seems that if I remove one, they re-appear.  Or perhaps I am doing something wrong with secpol.msc.  The machine is not on a domain.

Thanks.

Yes, IIS will add accounts to local security policies in order to function properly.

Please see the Microsoft KB article on Default permissions and user rights for IIS 6.0 for the specific permissions IIS needs to work properly.
