As an update: Having removed all AV from the server, the problem still exists.

Well, assuming it is some AV software running on the server, how could I demonstrate that it is the cause of the locks, as per the original question?

Policy's been checked and will be re-checked after the weekend, but right now it's set to not scan any of the files used by the build server's build process.

No pattern than I can observe; the locks appear totally at random. Sometimes it's the publishing step (pushing built assemblies into an output folder), sometimes it's in prepare step (deleting logs and artifacts from the last build). We're using MSBuild and a little NAnt to perform file manipulation.

AV has been disabled. As for the error, we simply get a message that the file is locked.

Actually, this is where my question comes in: "If the defaultProxy element is empty, the proxy settings from Internet Explorer will be used."

comment IIS App Pool Identity Internet Settings
A .NET application will normally read the internet settings from the account's local profile. What happens when, as in this case, the account lacks a local profile, because it is just being used as a security principal?
