Outlook2010 configuration with .edu pops up 'windows security' box

I am trying to configure Outlook 2010 with my .edu college website & as I am going through the process, there is popping box of 'Windows Security'. (attached screen print)
Though I have tried using every possible username password for that window, it didnt work. In first, that showed box showed college server name to log in, but after that it is showing Computer's name to log into.

I am using VPN, have details of University email specifications.

Please help me out soon..

Thanking in anticipation.

Dwaldron had the same problem , but the thread is old & nobody responded on that:
Security dialog box when setting up Outlook 2010
So I have been trying to setup an exchange server account for Outlook 2010 and have tried creating new profiles with various settings but the issue I am running into is a security dialog box that pops up when I am creating a new account. My server and everything are correct and the box is Windows Security, Mail Application and asks for my password for my computer. I am the Admin and I type in the password but the box just continually pops up like I am inserting the wrong password. I have tried my computer's password and the password for my email account on my school's Microsoft Exchange Server. Nothing works. The first time the box pops up it has the username for my email the second and all times after that it has my computer's name in it. Can I turn off this security setting? I attached a picture of the dialog box

Welcome to the windows 7 forums.

From my first cut, you need to select use another account in the small screen and prefix your username with
the domain name. like xxx\username

give that a shot.
