I am setting up a bunch of websites with a bunch of virtual directories.  In every case, I have to enter the "Connect As.." string with the username and password I've selected for security.  It's the same username for all sites and virtual directories.   Is there a way to enter it only once and have it be the default user for all sites?

does the user account have full access to the website folders (Right mouse click, properties, security tab)?

Yes it does.    I created a user account and gave it full access just for the purpose of IIS and Coldfusion.
It's just a pain entering that user and login 4-5 times for every website and I am afraid of having to ever change the password - if it changes would I have to go in and reenter it everywhere?
I am wondering if I can enter it once and just refer to it?   The options are "specific user"   or "pass-through" which I understand I should not be using.
