I added security in the form of Roles and Users Groups in SQL 2005.  Using Active Directory I would like to connect to my application using the Roles which I have set-up in my web.config file.  
Aportion of my web.config file that pertains to connecting to the database and code snippet from one of the ASPX.VB files is included.

I am on week two of trying to resolve this error, your help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

More confusion has resulted by reading your suggested solution, not to say that contained within it is a solution, just I don't understand fully, where I need to begin.
Question:
Am I to modifiy the Machine.config file contents to resemble that listed on the solution site?
Where might I find the Machine.config file (do note that my level is beginner)?
My application has three level of users with a three passwords, how to I incorporate the specifics into the Machine.config file?
What is the Application Pool and where might I find it?
How to I ensure that the Application Pool is a member of IIS_WPG Group in order to give it rights to Microsoft.Net\version no...., and the temp directory.
How do I restart the App Pool?

Thank you.

in IIS you can see what account is used for your Application Pool  (see tab identity)  ->it is probably network system account;
 
in local user groups on the server check if it is member of IIS_WPG
then:
--
for this account -give NTFS (Full)  permisssions  on the folder C:\windows\Microsoft.NET
--
<restart the App Pool?
in IIS right click  App Pool- stop - start  or restart IIS..
