Error HTTP 401.2 trying to view image on browser

Hi, I'm trying to simply view a .gif file from the browser as a test:


but I'm getting this error:

Error HTTP 401.2 - Unauthorized

"localhost" is a computer running Windows 7 Home Premium. The virtual path "fp_client" was created, IIS Authentication has Anonymous Authentication set (the others ones are disabled), NTFS permission for that directory (including subdirectories and files also) is set to Full Control for Everybody, and I still getting this error, both in IE and Firefox. What I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.
