I have windows Service sinstalled.

I build a Top level team site.
IIS for this web is SSL, Clear text authentication.  This is the one and only working setup I found to authenticate from the internet in an almost secure way.

I build a subsite called marketing.  So the url is
http://host.domain.com/marketing

Security for ther sub site is set to "unique" not "Ineherit from parent".
I added a domain user on my AD and added this user to this new subsite user list as a reader, contributer, webmaster.
If I log as "ME" who's having admin role for top site and subsite, I got no problem. But when I log as this new user in the subsite I got the page but I aslo got 3 more popup login window after.

But even if I cancel them, I have access to the site...

It pissme off ;-)

Do you have an idea?

Best guess is there is some file referenced (image of some sort most likely) that is referenced by the page that the user doesn't have NTFS permissions to while the Admin user does.

Try setting up FileMon from www.sysinternals.com and run a log while the user with the problem tries to connect.

Look for access denied and you should have the culprit.

All folders are "everyone" "Full control"
I wasent able to find somehting relevent with filemon.  The only that show up is the 401.1 error page but not the file that caused the error. I mean, there is no access denied status or somehting that could look like a failure.

But I found the files having the problem with another technique.

When I was asked another time the login password I just fill scrap in the fields, and using the status bar I can see thw files that he is trying to download.

And I found that it is all files coming from Sharepoint Service.  Basically from "_Layouts" and "_Themes" folders

IT also seems that even if I only try to access a subsite, he is making request to the parent site and my user do not have any access there. I also do not refer any file from there to it is strange.
