I have hosted my sharepoint site on Win2008 Server.

I am able to browse the site on IE browser.

However, some pages in the site do not open.

These pages are located inside 'ControlTemplates' folder of the site.
No content within this folder is opening in the IE browser.
I get a HTTP 403 error msg: The website declined to show this webpage

Could this be a IIS 7.0 permission level issue?
What are the settings that I should enable?

403 Forbidden is a HTTP status code returned by a web server when a user agent requests a resource that the server does not allow them to.

Reference: Wikipedia- HTTP 403[^]

So you see there can be various reason for this.

Can you check Event Log and IIS Logs? If yes, check for a relevant entry and find more details.

I checked both, the Event log and the IIS logs
Nothing relevant to this request has been logged :(
