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.

Any ideas?
