Error Message on Web Page which runs on Windows 7
Im getting this error message which started to appear each time you tried to browse to my website which runs on my Windows 7 box.
401 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to invalid credentials.
You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.
Its been running fine for about 2 months but as of last week, something has been changed.
Ive tried to browse to the webpgae whilst on the Windows 7 box and it works fine so I suspect its something to do with the permission on the account which allows external users to browse my website.

On the webserver W7 box, make sure that the IUSR_<servername> user has access to the directory where your website is located. Do you use anonymous access or Windows authentication?
i use anonymous access and can confirm that user is setup with read access to the wwwroot directory
adding EVERYONE to the folder has worked, is this ok?
