I don't use CGI with IIS myself. In general, IIS will operate as the IUSR_computername user unless the visitor is forced to authenticate to windows, which causes IIS to impersonate the logged on user after login.

With running cgi-scripts as another user do a search on "cgi-wrapper" . Generally try to lock down execute permissions as much as possible-only allow where needed. What version of IIS do you have, by the way? You may have issues with your ACL's and may need to resolve this (deny comes before allow).
