localhost wants a password

I have just activated IIS and have just installed SQL Server. I am running an asp.net 3.5 website ththrough http://localhost/uacdbs. The laptop has no password and opens in an administrator account.

However, when i try to open http://localhost/uacdbs it asks for user name and password.
"Enter user name and password for localhost"
