I did some research in regards to a Windows Security User/Password Popup suddenly appearing, but the only thread I could really find was related to only Windows Email.
I am having an issue when I go to my company's login page. A soon as I enter my user name and password onto the login page, I get the windows security popup that says "The server (xxxxx.com) requires a username and password"
and then requests I put in the information.
I have to click the cancel button 10-15 times before it goes away and lets me continue onto my company's webpage, and even when it does, there are some links and such that are now not available.
Then, when I attempt to connect to Outlook email from the page, the same thing happens, but this time it doesnt even give me the company's
login page, only the popup appears. I tried to just put in the username and password, but it just keeps asking me for the same thing over and over. And, if I click cancel, a page shows up with a Authentication Error.
Oddly enough, it does not happen when I click on the login link for my timecard. It also does not happen for any other page or email that I have. What I have tried so far:
- Turning off all internet saftey features
- Turning off McAfee security
- Restoring the computer 3 days prior to the problem
Any solutions to this problem would be appreciated. I haven't been able to check my work email for several days now.
