IIS Authenication

I recently "repaired" Windows, and now IIS won't authenicate anonymous web access. Nothing else has changed. IUSR_servername has the appropriate read access to the folder. Windows authentication works fine, but I want anyone to be able to access the site (not that it's any good, you understand!). Do I now have to uninstall IIS and reinstall?? Sad

In your website properties, under directory security>Anonymous access & Authentication control>Edit>Authentication Methods>Edit does it still list IUSRservername as the account to use?
Is "Allow IIS to control password" still checked?

Have you tried changing the "account to use" to another one & giving that account read access to the web files?

Also check the master properties for the WWW service match your web site properties regarding security, not sure which one overides which.

Well, I bit the bullet and removed IIS and reinstalled and all seems to be well with the world.

Phew! Cheesy
