Running IIS causes client browser on same machine to keep hitting google-analytics

Running IIS causes client browser on same machine to keep hitting google-analytics

(OP)
I have recently installed IIS on my home machine ( Windows XP SP3) and built a simple web site to allow family members to browse 'photos etc stored on an external hard drive from their own devices via WLAN.
What I have found is that when IIS is running and I try to browse the internet from the same machine I get a constant stream of requests to:
"Enter username and password for http://www.google-analytics.com" in Firefox.
or
"Connecting to www.google-analytics.com" in IE8.
Stopping the World Wide Web Publishing service makes the issue go away.
Any ideas what is causing the problem and how to fix it?
