SBS2008 http://companyweb does not redirect to http://companyweb/default.aspx

I am not aware of any changes that were recently made to this server, but all of a sudden http://companyweb is not forwarding to http://companyweb/default.aspx.

Users who try to browse to http://companyweb are getting a 404 not found error, however, if you manually append the default.aspx the page loads perfectly.  I've checked to make sure ASP pages are allowed, I've checked rights on the .net directory.  I've checked ports, etc all seem to be working, I've rebooted the server, the issue still exists. It's really bizarre.

Any suggestions?
