What is the role of IISAdmin Service?
You need to make sure you have the correct IUSR_<Servername> and IWAM_<Servername> accounts and passwords for IIS. In the past, I have had to delete the IUSR or IWAM accounts and re-create them. The set the passwords and everything worked ok.
You can use adsutil.vbs to view anonymoususername, anonymoususerpass, wamusername and wamuserpass on the IIS server. You may have to set "issecureproperty = true" to "false" in order to view current IUSR and IWAM passwords. Microsoft has an article ME297989 with more information.
