I have run the permissions wizard on my default Web site in IIS, and when I try to open a simple HTML page on my computer at, I first get a prompt to enter some username and password (clearly not my Windows login info because that won't let me in either), then it jumps to

"You are not authorized to view this page."  

HTTP 401.1 - Unauthorized: Logon Failed

How can I allow myself to view my own HTML and ASP pages in my webroot without having to logon?
