Yes I am and I've applied the fixes described here and here. Only the reg hack (changing the EnableActiveProbing value to 0) seems to permanently stop the popups
In my case OpenDNS is the cause of the pop ups as well. I have spent the last couple of hours playing with this and found that the reason the pop up occurs at different intervals is because I have a dynamic IP address and have to use the OpenDNS updater to update to my currently assigned IP address.

Because I use an air card through my router I may disconnect and connect numerous times in the course of a day.

I have posted a question as to whether there is any other way to clear this up without making the registry edit over at the OpenDNS forums. I note that this problem seems to present itself every year since 2009.

In as much as I have no idea what the edit will do I am at present unwilling to make it and will disable OpenDNS until another way of rectifying the issue comes along.

thank you scr for the link - it shows I am using OpenDNS. However, from what I read at that site, disabling it makes my computer vulnerable. I can live with this anomaly rather than put my system at risk. Or am I not understanding something?

Hi everyone
Have you tried setting static IP addresses for your PCs?

Thanks for your reply, I do have static IP's for my home network but it isn't possible for the Internet using my router with Verizon wireless modem as far as I know.

I received a response to my post over at the OpenDNS forum:

Quote:
Hi all,

This is due to the OS calling out to the domain ipv6.microsoft.com. OpenDNS is trying to resolve it, but the domain does not respond to our resolvers, which causes Windows to alert the user that they may need to update their login credentials, because it's assuming you haven't connected to the Internet.

The issue should be fixed now, please flush your browser and DNS cache by following the instructions below:

OpenDNS > Support > Knowledge Base > Clearing the DNS Cache on Browsers
OpenDNS > Support > Knowledge Base > Clearing the DNS Cache on Computers and Servers

Let us know if you have any questions.

Best regards,

-Anthony H.

Any movement of my mouse or doing anything and the notification disappears.

I'm getting the notification less & less.

Hi there
just another idea -- is the Internet browser trying to logon to an account that needs a password / username to connect -- for instance you might be trying to connect for example to Vodafone_wifi when you log on -- sometimes when you use public Wi-Fi services your system will try and connect automatically when in range of these unless you uncheck the box connect automatically.

Cheers

I'm on a network & found out that my brother-in-law started using OpenDNS about the time I started getting the notifications.
