No rights to upload file on shared hosting

When I try to upload a file I get the following error:
"Access to the path '<some full path on the server\uploaded file.ext>' is denied."

My website is hosted on a Shared server and because of problems with the upload page I used the fix posted in http://n2.codeplex.com/WorkItem/View.aspx?WorkItemId=21689'.

Strangly enough, when I try to create a new Folder, IE asks me for a username and password. If I supply the right one the folder gets created and I am able to upload files correctly (also in the standard Upload folder).

Could anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks.

Your provider probably has a control panel that allows you to make folders writable to the web site process. Log into your control panel, find the folder and set it to be writable.
