IIS sub directory access restriction

How do I restrict access to an IIS sub-directory to web user log-in clients only?  The following url should be password restricted, but is currently acessible to all:
http://www.nsia.ca/forms/advanced.pdf
The forms sub directory currently has the following settings:
Sharing tab - Do not share this folder
Security tab - only Administrators (Server) is listed as a group name (removed Everyone)
Should we set up this sub-drectory as a virtual directory instead of real directory?

i've found that NTFS security settings override IIS security.

if you right click on the folder in IIS, you should be able to restrict the access.  If not, try right clicking the folder in Explorer, go to properties, then the security tab

in IIS, right click the folder > properties > directory security tab > click the edit button under anonymous access and authentication control.  Un-check anonymous access and then setup your access control in the bottom part (domain, NT, etc...)

In IIS right click the folder Directory>Directory Security>Edit> -uncheck Enable Annonymous Access

Note if I google a form that has been accessed, it still shows up as an html version, how to clear this?

you can't....google has cached it, and will have to wait until the next time google indexes the site

honestly not too sure.  I have 3 sites getting indexed now, but I submitted them almost a month ago.

I believe if you submited them, you should be able to login to your account with them and re-submit, this may re-start the indexing cycle
