scripts are most likely being run under the IUSR_machinename account.
You may change this in the "Internet Services Manager" (or Computer
Management\Services and Applications\Internet Information Services)
The scripts should NEVER be run under an administrator account!
In this case you will most probably need to create a new network
account (with as small permissions as possible), change the account
used for the Anonymous access for the website or directory, create a
share on the server storing the files and give this user read (and
modify if really necessary) permissions to the share and the files.
It might still be best to have the files copied onto the webserver
and accessed localy.
