IIS on Windows 7 Ultimate

I have tried to set up IIS on my new Windows 7 powerhouse.

Whatever I do, I get the annoying message:

HTTP Error 401.3 - Unauthorized
You do not have permission to view this directory or page because of the access control list (ACL) configuration or encryption settings for this resource on the Web server.

I have set the sharing of my C-drive, C:\inetpub, C:\inetpub\wwwroot and even C:\inetpub\wwwroot\index.html

What more can I do?

Cheers,
Ib

Forgot to say, that of course I am trying "http://localhost/index.html" in my browser.

I don't have IIS 7 but in IIS5.1, you have to set the permissions in IIS.  They appear to be separate from Windows file and directory permissions.  For normal browsing, you need to enable the IIS anonymous access, "IUSR_machine name".  It's under directory security in IIS5.1.

You might want to "Request Attention" and get the Microsoft IIS Webserver zone added to your question.

"Request Attention" ???

In the question box above and to the right of the 'Time Zone', is "Request Attention".  That will send a message to the 'Mods' who can add zones to your question.  I look at all the zones because I'm curious but some of the experts only look at zones they're interested in.  Adding the Microsoft IIS Webserver zone might get the attention of some people who know more about it than I do.
