Try to Add "IIS_IUSRS" with Read permission to particular folder.
Please refer the following links

You need to give permission to C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config folder to Network Service user.

first of all, I am wondering as to why your application needs to read the C:\Windows\System32 file. May I please know whether you host this site on your own PC or on a shared server?
If it is on a shared server, I doubt that your current host will allow write permission to their system folder
If it is on your own PC and this PC is used by you only, you can certainly grant the NETWORK SERVICE with READ and WRITE permission to C:\Windows\System32. Please remember that granting a write permission on the system folder is not recommended and this is
due to the security issue.
Please mark this response as an "answer" if it helps you. Thanks heaps!

Just move your web folder to another drive other than C.
Then there is no need to give permissions. Don't forget to change physical path in IIS.
This will definately work for you.
