RE: Username and password required

Check under Control Panel -> Add/Remove Software -> Windows Components -> IIS to see if you have FrontPage extensions installed.

Use the IIS Admin to make sure the Enable Authoring is checked on the Server Extensions property sheet for the root web.

If that doesn't work then try changing the permissions of your Inetpub and everything under it to Everyone - Full Control.  You don't have to leave it that way forever, just until you figure out the problem.

This has happened to me before but I don't remember which of these things was the solution... just that these were the things that I messed with before it started working.  :(

To anyone else looking at this post, if you have Norton Anti-Spam 2004 this could be causing the problem. I found a post to this effect on another site, uninstalled it and hey presto, problem fixed.
