Show stopper problem!! Parser Error Message: Execute permission cannot be acquired

P: n/a
Hello, I'm receiving an error reading the machine.config file when I try
to access my web application. This error came out of nowhere. After
searching many sites, googelizing and searching here, I've found others
with the same problem but no resolution. The problem for me (and for
others) came out of nowhere.

Here's the error message:
> START <<<<< Server Error in '/MyApp' Application.

Configuration Error
Description: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration
file required to service this request. Please review the specific error
details below and modify your configuration file appropriately.

Parser Error Message: Execution permission cannot be acquired.

Source Error:

If I look inside the source I see this stack:

I did some reading which warned of problems with Index Server, but
that's already off. I also disabled Norton Anti-Virus. I deleted my
\bin files and rebooted. I deleted the temporary files for the project.
Still I can't get this to go away. The only thing that I know of doing
between this web app working and breaking is installing Macromedia
Shockwave viewer for my web browser.

Does anyone have any insite?

Thank you!
