HTTP 403.9 - Access Forbidden: Too many users are connected

Hello
I am trying to get a website working on my localhost using XP Pro and IIS 5.1.
This is a site which has worked OK for some considerable time but suddenly has this problem.
I am the only one using this computer. I wonder if my installation of  IE 8 has anything to do with this?
I noticed this comment but could not locate it in IIS
"disable HTTP keep-alives in the properties of the Web site"

The full error message is
The page cannot be displayed
There are too many people accessing the Web site at this time.

Please try the following:
Click the Refresh button, or try again later.

Open the localhost home page, and then look for links to the information you want.
HTTP 403.9 - Access Forbidden: Too many users are connected
Internet Information Services

Technical Information (for support personnel)
Background:
This error can occur if the Web server is busy and cannot process your request due to heavy traffic.
Any one any ideas please
Thanks

Hi,

Try to access http://localhost from any other browsers like Mozilla, Opera or Safari and see what happens.
Open IIS manager and go to the properties of the Default Web Site and under the Web Site tab check for Enable HTTP Keep Alives under the Connections division.

XP has a limit on the number of simultaneous connections (10). You may be running into that.

Thanks
The suggestion of ikshf143 solved the problem, I found Keep Alives and deselected this and the problem disappeared.
Just to test this I changed back Keep Alives and ran the pages and the problem did not re appear.
Strange but at least I do not have the problem now.
Thanks to you all
John
