Localhost homepage requires login??

All of a sudden, my vb.net project on localhost is requiring a login...only on the homepage (index.aspx). All internal pages load fine. I tried a reboot, an IIS restart, and reverting the homepage code to an old version. The security access on the web root and homepage file are set for full access and anonymous enabled. I haven't touched IIS settings in a year, so unless our net admin did something, nothing has changed there. The login box appears immediately, before any content. I've gotten a login box before, but it was caused by an image and that would always load the content before the image. Any advice?
Watch Question

Some content of the site may require a password?

Alternatively are you logged in local or in a domain(ahve you changed user?)

Also have your permissions changed?


I'm logged into our local network, nothing has changed there. No content on the homepage, or anywhere else requires a login. No permissions have changed and as I noted, in IIS it shows I have full access for the folder and the file. We recently had our network firewall software replaced, so that could possibly be it, but it was working the previous day...so I don't expect that's the issue. This is happening in IE and FF as well.
Have you tried reseting your IE settings?

Add 'everybody' to the local administrators group temporarily to rule out it being permission based locally.


That did it, thank you!
