You must be a member of Site Collection Administrators and Farm Administrators. Are these set?

This is a Internet Explorer permissions problem.  What version are you using?

internet properties, security tab, under internet go to custom level at the bottom for Logon check auto log on with current username and password. close out of the internet and re-try it

OK, I made that change and no go. I tried a laptop with my username a few minutes ago and it works under my name, even without the above setting changed. t has to be something to do with IE or my PC not allowing me to access. Any other ideas on this? Thanks for your help so far!

OK just found the issue, yay! I had to uncheck "Enable Windows Authentication" in "Internet Options" - "Advanced Settings" (screenprint attached). Thank you for your help as it narrowed down the issue to IE, not SharePoint!
