SQL server 2005 connection issue

This is a strange one, and it’d be nice if somebody could give some tips on how to solve it.
A number of my websites use the same database connection string "Server=.\SQLEXPRESS;Integrated Security=True;Database=dinfo" – It’s a SQL 2005 server. Strangely, one of the websites is giving a "SQL Server does not exist or access denied" error. Even though other websites, using the same connection string work fine.
The website in question seems to be running under IUSR_<machineName> which, I believe is pretty standard. I even ran it under Administrator, but with no joy. Changing the period (.) to localhost didn’t work either.
Anybody any theories?
