Windows 7: Constant 'Additional log on information may be required' pop-up

Constant 'Additional log on information may be required' pop-up

After installing today's (13-11-2012) updates, I constantly get the following message: 'Additional log on information may be required - click to open you browser' If I execute my browser nothing happens (off course) I'm on a cable internet connection which doesn't require log on information what so ever. PC is via Ethernet cable connected to a linksys 54GL DD-WRT router. How can I fix this annoying and stupid problem? Edit] I use OpenDNS

Same problem here and I am also using OpenDNS. I don't want to have to change that. It is autoconfig from my router. I'm hoping that either Microsoft or OpenDNS will figure it out soon. It's very annoying.

The problem also happened on my Virtualbox installation that uses OpenDns. I will wait with updating my system until it gets sorted out.

I use OpenDNS as well and now have the same popup/issue. What makes you think it is OpenDNS? I am on a wired LAN and on a domain. I still authenticate perfectly to the domain, so I suspect this isn't a "real" issue and not related to OpenDNS. Lets hope there is an easy fix .... otherwise I am going to do a restore and start over again.... :-)

Changing DNS server apparently solves the problem. Thread has been opened on OpenDNS forum: OpenDNS Community > Forums > "Additional log on information may be required" pop up issue

I stand corrected.. You all are correct. I just changed my DNS server to Comcast's (75.75.75.75) and the pop up disapears.... Hope OpenDNS is on it!
