IUSR_SERVERNAME General Properties Greyed Out

I have a test environment web server that was prompting me for a username/password when attempting to access the page.

I verified all of the site properties were correctly set up.

I noticed that the annonymous user account is the standard IUSR_SERVERNAME. I checked the account to make sure it was not locked out, etc. and noticed that all of the options under the General tab of the account are greyed out except for "Account is disabled."

I created a new local account and inserted it into the site properties, and all is working fine.

What would cause this to happen though?

We use local polices to lock our servers down. Am I missing something in there?
