OS: Windows 2000 Professional SP2
Internet Explorer: 6

Problem: everytime I open IE or connecting to MSN Messenger or similar applications (which ever requiring to connect to internet) this little window of "Enter Network Password" pops up. But it does NOT pop up randomly like people with the same problem when they use Outlook.

The username and password are saved, but the problem is that i have to click "Enter" for IE to proceeds or for MSN messenger to logon.

Please advise if there are ways to eliminate this pop-up.

Thanks ^^.

Internet Explorer -> Tools -> Internet Options -> "Connection" Tab -> "LAN settings" -> uncheck "Automatically detect setting" and uncheck "(something like) Use Auto Assigned Script"

Note. This solution is for those whose problem is described above, i.e. I don't know if this would work if you are one of those experiencing the pop-up constantly/randomly with Outlook.
