IUSR_ User not working on a website – 401 error

Found this solution to decided to share it out!

  1. Goto Computer Management, Users, Right click the IUSR and reset the password.
  2. Right click the website, Properties, Directory Security, Authentication and Access Control
  3. I’m assuming you have the IUSR User already there so just change the password to what you set in Step 1

Now press F5 in the browser and the site should be working.
