You do not have permission to connect to WSUS server

I've had WSUS 3.0 sp1 up and running fine. I was notified on yesterday via email that there were new updates, so I went to approve

From my local XP sp2 machine, I got an error in the console: "You do not have permission to access this WSUS server. You must be a member of the WSUS Administrators of WSUS Reporters security groups."

funny thing is, I am a member of the WSUS Admins group - In fact, I'm a Enterprise Admin.

So I immediatly remoted desktoped into the WSUS machine and attempted to connect via the console. Got the same error message.
Till yesterday it was working fine.I'm able to browse to the IIS virtual directory from IIS or through IE.

I have not changed any permission on the WSUS folders.

Please help with the Appropriate Solutions.

Try unchecking "allow anonymous access" in the directory security of the APIRemoting30 subdirectory of the WSUS Administration website in IIS.

There is a thread on the WSUS with several people who have the exact same Event ID errors.

One of the solutions offered is to reinstall .NET 3.0
