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

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
