'Access denied' errors appearing out of the blue
Posted on 2008-06-19
Two customer sites have reported the same problem in the last couple of days. Not only is browsing to a classic ASP intranet site 'not authorized' (prompts for user credentials), but 'access denied' errors occur when the site attempts to send via XMLHTTP. As this has happened at two unconnected sites it smacks of Windows Updates breaking something. I am scouring the entire web as we speak but if anyone else has suggestions...
I am looking at WindowsUpdate.log and on the 17th June 2008 there's a heck of a lot of activity... hmmmm,,,
