When you type http://localhost on a local Web server or type the name of your Web server in a browser, the following Web page may be displayed:

   The page cannot be displayed There is a problem with the page you are
   trying to reach and it cannot be displayed. 

   Please try the following:
   Click the Refresh <javascript:location.reload()> button, or try again    later.
   Open the localhost <http://localhost> home page, and then look for 
   links to the information you want. 
   HTTP 500.100 - Internal Server Error - ASP error
   Internet Information Services 
   Technical Information (for support personnel)    Error Type:

   Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A0046)

   Permission denied: 'GetObject'

   /localstart.asp, line 19 
   Browser Type: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)    

   GET /localstart.asp  


This Web page is displayed for any of the following reasons:

  • You have anonymous authentication selected for the Localstart.asp file.

  • You are not logged on as a user with administrator privileges.


To resolve this issue, log on to the computer with administrator privileges, and then remove anonymous access from the Localstart.asp file.

To remove anonymous access, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Internet Information Services MMC snap-in or the Internet Services Manager.
  2. Locate the Localstart.asp file within the default Web site.
  3. Right-click the Localstart.asp file, and then click Properties.
  4. On the File Security tab, click Edit.
  5. Click to clear the Anonymous Access check box, and then click OK.


When you type http://localhost on a local Web server or type the name of your Web server in a browser, the default Web page located in the Inetpub\Wwwroot folder is displayed. By default, Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) displays the following pages in this order:

  • Default.htm
  • Default.asp
  • Iisstart.asp

If there is no Default.htm or Default.asp file in the folder and you log on locally to the Web server, IIS tries to load the Localstart.asp page instead of the Iisstart.asp page. If you log on from a remote location, IIS loads the Iisstart.asp page.
