On our sbs 2008 machine, whether on the server itself or a machine, it asks for a username / password to access companyweb.  Even using admin user / passes do not work

As Sharepoint / Companyweb is populated with data, what i would like to know is if this solution will affect any data in the database , or will it return to normal if successful?

Otherwise have you any other suggestions to resolve this?

I wouldn't recreate the companyweb, I'd fix the problem.

I seem to recall this is a problem with the authentication mode on Companyweb, and you need to change the authentication method rather than recreate the web site.

This URL may help: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/961143

You also may try this (which is a workaround I used on a client of mine).  This also sets the authentication method correctly.

I believe this problem is only seen on IE8, and is a known problem (Check the SBS 2008 Blogs)

Click Start, click Administrative Tools, Click SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration, and then click Continue on the User Access Control Dialogue.

In the Authentication Providers page, Click Application Management, and then click the "Authentication providers" under the "Application Security" tab

Check the Web Application, make sure the port is 987; otherwise change web application to the URL which has the port 987

Click the "Default" zone, you will go to the Edit Authentication page;

Check the Negotiate(Kerberos) option under the Integrated Windows authentication tab;

Click OK in the Dialog which gives a warning that "You have chosed to use Kerberos with Integrated Windows authentication. Manual configuration steps by a domain administrator will be required if the application pool's security account is not the Network Service" and then click Save;
