Hi there I have done what you said but still that damm block comes up....I have just uninstall the office a few times but still it did not work but the funny thing is I can't get it to be brand new like the first time you open it. When I open it the emails is still the and my contacts and everything and when I delete the .pst file in the local folder under my user name it asks for it after i uninstalled it so I then have to put back the .pst file otherwise i have no Outlook. is there anyway to make me have a normal outlook????

Is it that you want to stop having to log in to your PC or do you want to stop having to log in to your email program which, as we just learned, is Microsoft Outlook?

No, the problem is when i send and receive my emails I have to put in my email address password and that is really frustrating because i get like 300 emails a day. On my old laptop that I had it worked fine also windows 7 and I can't seem to get rid of the network password promt.

I don't use Outlook, but it should have an option checked within each account set up to "remember password" somewhere near the place where you enter your "Logon Information" for that account.

Thanks, hope someone can help me on this one because it driving me insane.
Would the password prompt be from your email program like Outlook?

It would help in figuring out what solution would be correct if you would tell us
what email program your using.

You were first talking about network password prompt, which made no sense. OK, now you told it's the email password and told you are using Outlook.

Is this the prompt you get every time? If so, just type your password and check the option Save this password in your password list:

You must do this once for every email account you have setup in Outlook.

A bit wrong information there. If a Windows computer is part of the network, it must belong to domain or workgroup. Additionally, if a Windows 7 computer belongs to a workgroup it can also join a homegroup, belong to both. To join a homegroup it must have Windows 7 operating system but all Windows computers on network can join and belong to a workgroup.

If you choose your network location as Home (other options Work and Public) in Windows 7, you most certainly can join any network or workgroup, also those including other Windows versions, as well as Linux and Mac machines.

Joining a workgroup, homegroup or domain is something completely different than choosing a network location, Public or Private in Vista and Home, Work or Public in Seven. Opposite to what you told, in a home network it's completely OK to set network location to Private on Vista machines, and to Home on Seven machines, and join them on the same workgroup.

What is the difference between a domain, a workgroup, and a homegroup?
Choosing a network location
Network Location - Set as Home, Work, or Public Network

Kari, note the title of your last link "Network Location - Set as Home, Work, or Public". You only have that choice in Windows 7. In Vista it was Private or Public.

An extract from my post:

You had very clearly mixed network location type Home with Homegroup, two totally different things, thus giving false information. Those links are there on purpose, to show you the difference.

Homegroup needs IPv6 address, which makes it impossible for older Windows versions to join Homegroup. But any XP or Vista computer can join the same workgroup than a Windows 7 computer with network location set to Home.

Very sincerely, Kari
