    Look @ here..

    IWA is Integrated Windows Authentication.  You can check if it's on/turn it off by going to your website properties through Internet Services Manager.  Select the Directory Security tab and click Edit beside "Anonymous access and authentication control".  In the Authentication Methods window that opens, make sure the Anonymous access box is checked and the Integrated Windows authentication box (as well as the basic authentication and digest authentication) boxes are not checked.

    This will eliminate the windows log on prompt, but you still won't have access to the files if your NTFS permissons are not correct - you'll get a 401.5 unauthorized access error instead.  If so, make sure your IUSR account and IWAM account have permissions to access your whole system32 directory (including subfolders).  If this doesn't resolve the problem, download and use Filemon for Windows (  It should help isolate exactly which file(s) are returning the unauthorized access error.

    it might help you...
