Is the UserID IUSR_computername?

If so ...

Click Start>Administrative Tools>Internet Information Services

Expand the left tree, right-click your WebSite>Properties

Click on Directory Security, then in "Anonymous access and authentication control" click on Edit

Tick "Allow IIS to control password", then OK and come out of IIS.

If that doesn't work, you could back up your data, uninstall then reinstall IIS, that should resolve the problem as well.

replace the main asp file with your own and it will not ask for password any more.
