IIS 6 "403 - Forbidden: Access is denied."

I'm getting this error when I try to browse to a site on IIS6.

403 - Forbidden: Access is denied.
You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.

Path credentials is set to a specific user.
This user has the appropriate rights to the website's physical path.
In IIS, when I click on "Basic Settings" and "Test Settings", I get:
   "The specified user credentials are valid."
   "The specified user credentials are authorized to access the specified physical path."

What could I be missing?
It is an asp.net 4.0 website using "Forms" authentication.

Sorry but this didn't help.
It didn't show me which process was locked due to permission.
I'm closing the question.
