Just to finish.

Yes, you are right!

It had to do with the options! They were not set for the users directory!

I just had to do this:

# UserDir: The name of the directory that is appended onto a user's home
# directory if a ~user request is received.  Be especially careful to use
# proper, forward slashes here.  On Windows NT, "Personal/My Website"
# is a more appropriate choice.
UserDir "My Documents/My Website"
<Directory "C:/Documents and Settings/*/My Documents/My Website">
    AllowOverride FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
    Options MultiViews Indexes SymLinksIfOwnerMatch IncludesNoExec
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
        Order deny,allow
        Deny from all

Thank you Robert.
