The error is there because your files are not accessible by IIS.

What you've to do is grant permission to IIS on required files.

Locate your folder where you files reside. Right click the folder and select Properties.

Under Security tab > Add Read permission to *IWEB_USER* user.

Recycle App Pool ( optional).

Refresh your page should resolve your problem.
