    I have IIS 6 installed and runnning. I try to denny write access to the user
    IUSR_%COMPUTERNAME% in the root directory using the xcacls.vbs tool:

    cscript xcacls.vbs d:\inetpub\wwwroot /E /D IUSR_%COMPUTERNAME%:W

    The following rigths are dennied:

    Then IIS stop serving pages, it requires authentication.

    If I aplpy the same setting using the GUI, only the last four rights are
    dennied, and the system works properly.

    Can anybody help me?

    ?? help you with what ?
    First, do not use /D deny, instead, remove what should not
    be allowed. The identities need Sync as they will want to
    hook in order to be notified of changes.
