    You should definately make this change. If anything, the other admin is
    confusing Anonymous access of web-pages by the IUSR_[computername] account.
    However, IIS manages the password of this account automatically and the
    account is therefore a member of "Authenticated Users", since IIS
    authenticates every page as IUSR automatically if Anonymous access is
    enabled. The only account that is affected by Everyone is the guest account
    which is disabled by default.
    Hope this helps,
