I want to allow anonymous login to my site but everytime I visit the page it prompts me for a user/password.

I have configured anonymous login properties of site and set user to IUSR_<machineName>. Any ideas what I've missed?

Have you set the permissions on the folder that contains the website and the files whithin it to allow read access to IUSR_machine name?

Thats not the answer as this user is created by IIS. Besides I've allowed full access to everyone for this share

If you created a folder for this website, you will need to give the IIS_IUSRS user list and read permissions under secirity not under sharing.
the user is created by IIS but that user is only given rights to the default website directory by default.

Yes and I included the IUSR as my anonymous login account, although I didn't set a password for this as I don't know what it would be..?

Turns out some permissions hadn't been inherited from parent folder ;)
