Authentication on Local Intranet issue

I've recently moved a local Intranet site from one server running IIS6 to another running IIS7.  Everything seems fine apart from on accessing the site I get challenged to "Connect to the localserver.localdomain.com.

On entering the local Admin and password I get full access, however the only username and password that does work is the local admin.  What I can't work out is what access I'm being challenged for.  I have made myself a member of the local admin group without any success, I have changed the permissions on the files so I have local admin rights on them without any success.

Any help would be great.  Picture attached.Authentication challenge

From the looks of it you have either basic or Integrated authentication running. Basic would be my guess.

To turn it to no authentication (Assuming you want this?):
Open IIS manager
Expand Sites
Select your Site
Double Click Authentication
Right click Anonymous and Select Enabled


If you dont want anonymous access then enable the access you want:

I have Windows authentication and anonymous authentication enabled, if I disable the Windows authentication that pretty much stops everything and I get the

"401 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to invalid credentials."

I have looked through the config file and can't find anything obvious in there.

if you right click and edit anonymous authentication what does it give you in there?

The choice between

Specific User
Application Pool Identity

at the moment it is set to Application Pool Identity but it was originally Specific User.

That should be set to Specific user, Should be IUSR i believe.
Also make sure that the following accounts have  read permission to the folder :
Network Service
IUSR_(machine name)
IIS_WPG
IIS_IUSRS

I have all those permissions on the directory and this morning I did a Robocopy across from the working server so the permissions should be the same, but I get the same error.

As long as I enter the local admin username and password it works, it's frustration to say the least.
