I have setup an Intranet site for work, with includes some WORD files.  I'm running the site on IIS 4.0.  The problem I'm getting, is when a user of Office 2000 clicks on a hyperlink of the WORD file, up pops a login/password box.  You can hit Cancel to get around it, but it's annoying!  It doesn't happen with the users of Office 97.  It also does this to me, with Admin rights.  Any ideas how to prevent this?

Maybe this happens when you copy a shortcut from a PC.
The shortcut will have the Computername in it.

Try recrating the hyperlink by first removing the shares on the computer from wich you create the hyperlink.

What type of authentication do you have set up on the website? Are you just using anonymous access?

What permissions do you have set on the folder where all the website resides? It sounds like you may have a small conflict with permissions that could be causing the problem.
