1) Rboot the machine
2) Check security settings in IE7. Make sure java, etc is allowed.

I hope this helps !

If running via Citrix I have seen a problem where Internet Explorer just drops cookies (causing authentication to be lost). If this is the case I have no solution - never found a solution had to revert back to basic HTTP authentication.

Other than this it sounds like DWA client is attempting to contact server via other hostname than what is used to open DWA (would cause authentication to not exist for different hostname). Check hostnames in server document and be sure to use the correct when opening DWA.
Could use Ethereal to sniff packages between klient and server and see what requests and responses there are and which fail (DWA uses ajax allot so there are requests going on in the client background)

btw: DWA is only supported on IE7 on Domino version 6.5.6, 7.0.3, 8.0. Search on Lotus support pages for known issues (but non of them seems related to your problem).
