I have IIS installed and running on my XP pro machine. When I go to http://localhost I get this error. These are the things I have researched and done:

index.html exists in inetpub/wwwroot, I created test.html adn could open and view that in I.E. (using version 6), but when I go to http://localhost/test.hml I get the same error message.

1). I went to http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;896861 and created DisableLoopbackCheck registry value, as well as BackConnectionHostNames reg value, with "localhost" as host name.


2). http://vbcity.com/forums/topic.asp?tid=127381 went under default website settings in IIS and checked "Allow ISS to control...", "integrated Windows Auth." was already unchecked.

3). http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=322822, Use HTTP 1.1 through proxy connections setting is unchecked (wasn't before).

Everything else that I seem to find point to these 3 solutions, does anyone else have any ideas?

specs: Working on my own machine with IIS 5.1 XP Professional. This is whant my Web Site folder looks like -

- Default Web Site
+ IISHelp
+ Printers
+ Reports
+ ReportServer
+ aspnet_client
index.html
test.html
