    Those are the "Front Page Extensions".

    You can turn that off in IIS's property sheet.

    I don't remember exactly where it is. I completely stopped using Windows a year ago.

    If I remember correctly, there is a tab in the web site's properties that contains a button labeled "advanced."

    After clicking that button, another tabbed dialon comes up, and the last page says "Front Page Extensions".

    Also, if I remember correctly, you can right click on the web site in the tree view listing on the left (while viewing the IIS MMC console) and select an option listed in the context menu to "Remove Front Page Extensions" or something like that.

    Keep in mind that removing the extensions will leave you unable to connect to the server when publishing the site with Visual InterDev or FrontPage.
