IE 8 keeps asking for password RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear techies,

    I got 3 users who has the problem that if they start up IE8 and go webbing, IE8 keeps asking them to enter their credentials (usern/password) after every website visit. We tried several solutions but none have been successful.


    Remove browser history incl. cookies
    Intranet site added to trusted websites
    Turned ' Automatic logon only in intranet Zone'  ON

    Some new suggestions would be appreciated.

    Try using Credentials Manager?  I'm not sure if it gets updated when you do what you have done but clearly it is related.  FWIW when I was having a problem with simply connecting to support.microsoft.com I could tell new Cookies were being generated from something when I didn't want to sign out of my forum sessions.  In that case using File, New session or InPrivate Browsing was a workaround but of course in your case doing either of those could cause a login if authentication is required at your site.  I got the impression that in a way I was being induced into strengthening my account's password, which is what ultimately seems to have fixed my problem symptom.   ; )
