Remote Web Workplace hangs at "Loading..."

I'm running SBS2003 and up until today the Remote Web Workplace has worked without any problems.  No changes have been made to the network or server config.  Today, when accessing the RWW site and logon credentials are entered, the site displays "Loading..." and that's it...that's as far as it goes.  I saw other threads that were saying that after 15 minutes, the logon process completes, but in my case, it doesn't.  I also saw the threads about the appTS registry setting and those changes didn't fix my issue either.  Nothing significant in the logs.  This is all the info I have at the moment.  The same symptom appears on any computer used to access RWW.  Any help is greatly appreciated!

That article (883380) seems to be specifically for Exchange Server virtual directories.  It states,
"By default, Exchange Server 2003 creates the following six IIS virtual directories: Exadmin, Exchange, ExchWeb, Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync, OMA, and Public."  It doesn't reference the "Remote" virtual directory.

WOW!  I was looking into the article mentioned above and decided to check the OWA access even though it's not used in the organization.  When accessing, got a script error, so I added the server hosting it all to the IE Trusted Sites and BAM! Everything is working as it should now.  Weird.  Didn't need to do that before and like I said in my original post, nothing has changed as far as configuration of the server goes.

While the article 883380 The Dark1 mentioned didn't directly fix the issue, it DID lead me down the right troubleshooting path!  Thanks!
