Heres the problem,

I enabled SSL on a website, and suddenly (and I don't know if its directly related, or if its a coincidence) whenever we click on our .wss files, it asks for a username and password.  Anonymous access is enabled for all pages, so thats not the issue, and neither is NTFS file permissions, becasue those are all set correctly too.  

The funny thing is that when it asks for a username and password, not even the administrator account of that machine will work.  So basically, there is no way of getting past this authentication, and no way of disabling it.  

I am stumped, has anyone run across a similar problem before?
