Failed to start monitoring changes to '....\web.config' because access is denied.

I've spent 8 hours trying to get my ASP.NET app to work but to no
avail. I am running ASP.NET 2.0 on a Windows 2003 server. I am using
IIS 6.0.

When I run my application, I get the error message:

Failed to start monitoring changes to 'xxx\web.config' because access
is denied.

(where xxx is the path to my application)

I am trying to view the start page using a browser on the same machine
and not over the Internet.
I have tried just about everything:

* Added virtually every possible user on the machine including
"everyone" and granted everyone full permissions
* Setup anonymous access in IIS to use various accounts including
Local System
* Modified the machine.config and web.config to use accounts that have
full permissions
* Modified application pooling to use various accounts with full
permissions.

What am I missing??

Your help is much appreciated.

the "method 3" can fix the problem)
