I am trying to learn ASP.NET and C# and recently tried to use IIS on windows 8. I did the normal procedure to install IIS on windows 8 and it worked. But since then whenever I've tried to open localhost on IE it is giving me error as below --
An error occurred while accessing the resources required to serve this request. You might not have permission to view the requested resources.
Error message 401.3: You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials you supplied (access denied due to Access Control Lists). Ask the Web server's administrator to give you access to 'C:\inetpub\wwwroot'.
Version Information: Microsoft .NET Framework Version:4.0.30319; ASP.NET Version:4.0.30319.18045
I am logged in as an administrator and have access to the inetpub folder. Also checked the web.config file which is
as below --
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<identity impersonate="false" />
Any help/suggestion appreciated...

Is the administrator account the one that's accessing the folder? Likely it's the app pool identity and you need to add permission for that account.
