Windows 7: Additional log on information may be required in notification tray

I thought that it could be one possible cause and that is why I mentioned that the only Password remembered by my system is that of SevenForums.

But it is now more or less clear (?) the root cause is OpenDNS which yes I have been using.

In any case this problem or nag occurs only occasionally and disappears on its own.So I really do not know whether it is worth any effort to keep it at bay.

Your ISP provides DNS service automatically.
Is it really necessary to use Open DNS?
