I also have this problem from time to time. The user\password that usually works are the username and password you logged into windows with.

It's usually because basic authentication has been enabled in IIS and should be switched off for that site. Open IIS, right click on the WroxUnited site and click Properties. Under the Directory Security tab, hit the Edit button in the section marked Anonymous Access and authentication control. In the following dialog, uncheck the basic authentication box, leaving Anonymous Access and Windows Authentication checked.

That should get access to your site working without asking for a username and password each time.
