Windows 7: Repeated Network Password Requests

04 Sep 2015   #1

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit
Repeated Network Password Requests

I run two desktops both on Win 7 Pro, both using Office Outlook 2007 and both via the same Router.
All is fine except one of them, always the same one, will have a burst of constant requests for the Network Password. Goes quiet for an hour or so and then kicks off again.
The advice I got from the Microsoft Community was to leave the various boxes blank, that didn't work
Any ideas please??

You can try a clean startup - Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

Also check Event Viewer for clues.

Does this happen while doing nothing? Screenshot perhaps.

This happens at random times; this machine today has been on for about two hours now without a prob, but it could at of the blue have a burst of these requests and after 5 or maybe 25 requests they stop!

I will have a go at a Clean Restart, maybe a clue there

Thanks for the answer
