403 Access Denied when attempting to create or OPEN an ASP.NET web project

P: n/a
lou
This is the error that Visual Studio 2003 gives me when trying to open some
of my Web Projects:
"The Web server reported the following error when attempting to create or
open the Web project located at the following URL:
'http://Localhost:/MyWebApplication'. 'HTTP/1.0 403 Access Denied'."
Some web projects give a '500 Internal Server Error' when trying to open
them.
I'm having the problem with all .NET solutions on my system. They worked
fine up until noon today and I don't know what changed to make this happen.
I've searched around and found posts with different suggestions, but none of
them worked. I've run aspnet_regiis -i, that didn't help either.

Any more suggestions? I'm running WinXP Pro, IIS 5, IE 6, and I have both
VS.NET 2003 and VS.NET 2002 on my machine and the problem occurs in both. I
can't open any web projects.

It also occurs with Visual Studio 2002 except the error text is a little
different although it says the same thing:
"Unable to open Web Project 'MyApplication2002'. The file path
'C:\Inetput\WWWRoot\MyApplication2002' does not correspond to the URL
'http://Localhost:/MyApplication2002'. The two need to map to the same
server location. HTTP Error 403: Access Denied"

Thanks for any help,

All I had to change to fix this was one option in IE.
Under Internet Options --> on the Connections tab --> Lan Settings... -->
uncheck Automatically detect settings
