DH and I both have new HP Media Center PCs and I am now trying to check out some of the things we may not want to keep.

Does anyone know why this would be in Argonne's "My Documents" folder? We have no idea where it came from and it doesn't seem to be anywhere on my computer. I was looking for something else when I spotted this, it is not in a sub folder. When I clicked to see what it is the page showed but at the top it says "IE has restricted this file from showing active content that could access your computer." On the page it says "This property indicates whether IIS should handle the user password for anonymous users attempting to access resources. For anonymous access to function properly, if the value of AnonymousPasswordSync is FALSE the administrator must set the AnonymousUserPass property. If the value of AnonymousPasswordSync is TRUE, no anonymous user password is required." After this there are two lists, one headed "Attribute Name" and beside that is "Attribute Value". Then it say "Access Locations" with two more lists - "Metabase Path" and "LLS Admin Object Type".

I apoligize for this being so long but I haven't a clue what it is talking about.

Could this have something to do with setting up the wireless between the two PCs?

I am totally mystified. Did Google searches with no luck.

Hp m1270n
Windows XP
IE6 sp2

Thank you for any help.

Ernestine, You Should Be Able To Delete That File...

It's an informational webpage file only but I'm not sure why it got placed in the "My Documents" folder.. It does sound like the IIS server programs were being used for your network setup...About the IIS AnonymousPasswordSync (You made some slight typos in your post.), here is a link which might give a little more info:


Hope this helps.
