In your configuration, you cannot get a Network Service token.
To get a token for the Network Service account, you must be running as local
system, and then you can call LogonUser for the Network Service account with
no password and logon type LOGON32_LOGON_SERVICE.
Note that this is not really an IIS question. If you would like further
information on creating your own token for the Network Service account, you
might try a newsgroup dedicated to Win32 security programming.
