Do you want to allow anonymous authentication? If so, right-click on the
folder where you website root is located and choose "Properties". Goto the
"Security" tab and make sure that the account configured for anonymous
access (by default IUSR_<computername>) has Read/Execute (RX) permissions to
the folder and files in it.

If that user account doesn't have permissions to be able to read the file,
then the webserver will tell the browser to ask you for credentials so that
it can read the file off the hard disk.
