Site now wants a password!

Specs: Windows XP
While in my remote desktop on my Windows Server 2003, I dragged the folder containing all of my code/scripts/folders/etc. to the desktop, trying to create a shortcut. I realized that it moved the entire folder to the desktop, so I dragged it back to where it was.

Now, it seems that created some changes in permissions and/or security settings, and my website is asking for a username/password from me.

How do I restore the settings so that I get my website back?

Okay, my 14-year-old son fixed it.

Here's the solution. In windows explorer, right-click the folder, then:

Select Properties
Click on Status/Security
Add 'users' to list of users

That must have gotten changed while moving the folder.
