Access to the path "c:\windows\" is denied

I just finished installing IIS 5.1.  I have an existing project someone else created that I will be working on.  I have set up a virtual directory in IIS for the site and have given read/write permissions to the ASPNET account and the IUSR_ account.  When I attempt to open the main page I get the following:

 Access to the path "c:\windows\\framework\v1.1.4233\Temporary ASP.NET Files\blah\blah\blah" is denied.

I've done everything short of granting "Everyone" Full Control of everything and I can't seem to get past this error.  Does anybody have any ideas on how to correct this?

Do you have any other application working on this IIS?  What account is your worker process using?  Make sure whichever account your worker process uses has access to the framework under windows\ Sounds like you might need to reinstall the framework / iis and use default settings.

Thanks for the reply Matt.  I had just installed IIS and Visual Studio (in that order) right before loading the project.  There is no other ASP.NET project running.  What do you mean by "worker process"?  I have IIS configured for Anon. access using the built in IUSR_ account and I have granted that account, as well as the ASPNET, account full perms on the web folder, and the C:\windows\\framework folder.  I'm fresh out of ideas, except for just reinstalling everything, but that wouldn't make much sense to me being that I started with a fresh install.  Thanks again for any help...

By "worker process" I mean either w3wp.exe (Windows Server) or aspnet_wp.exe (Windows XP) . See what user name that process is running under.  This user should have write access to C:\windows\\framework\v1.1.4233\Temporary ASP.NET Files\

I'm using XP, but I can't find the aspnet_wp.exe process running.  I know the web server is running, and it is configured for ASP.NET 1.1.4322.  I've tried pulling up the page again to trigger the worker process, but there's still no aspnet_wp.exe.

run this at your windows cmd line

C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322>aspnet_regiis.exe -i

Got it.  Went into C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\CONFIG and opened the MACHINE.CONFIG file.  Under the processModel settings, username was set to Machine.  I changed it to System and verified that the System account had appropriate permissions for the Temporary ASP.NET Files folder.  Problem solved.  Thanks for your help again!
