IIS 3.0 won't execute .exe's anymore???

'kay, it's late, I'm tearing out my hair...

Long story short, IIS 3.0\NT 4.0 sp2 "suddenly" won't execute .exe
(count.exe, mailto.exe) files, but it will execute .cgi's, .pl's,
..idc's, .asp's, etc., etc. IT keeps coming up and annoyingly asking
for a pwd\id (which the admin takes care of). What I don't understand
is if the iusr_<machinename> account has the correct permissions and
the directory is EXE enable via IIS (as referenced by it's ability to
exec .idc's, etc.) why doesn't it want to do EXE, "suddenly."

Truly stumped here...

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated (last time I volunteer for
a late night update :( )
