I have an IIS Intranet application written in framework 4. When I deploy it (by copying the files to the share on the server) everything seems to work, for me. The only strange thing is that others get a popup that asks them to log in. You can press cancel and the site works normally. It works fine if I am logged in on my account, but for everyone else it asks for a login.

Any idea why that might be or how to fix it?

You should check that anonymous access is setup and running as an appropriate user (normally by default a local account starting IUSR_) if it is then you should check that the application files have permissions setup for that user.
