Automatic logon with current user name and password Windows XP

I am launching a shortcut from the desktop that's pointing to an internal resource:  i.e.  http://server/name and that's launching an application.

the credentials don't get passed thru like they're supposed to.  The user gets prompted to input their credentials.  After inputting the user name and password, it lets her thru.  I've changed the IE settings for the Internet, Intranet and Secure sites to "Automatic logon with current user name and password".  I've also tried adding the site to the Secure sites list.

If the user uses a different computer it works just fine.  If a different user tries the "problem" computer it also works just fine.  I thought it may be a profile issue so I deleted her profile and re-created it.  Same issue.  

The user is a member of the local Administrators group.

check directory security at IIS admin at the web server.

is anonymous access disabled?
what about windows integrated authentication?

There's nothing wrong at the web server as the same user can successfully login from a different computer and also another user can use the "problem" computer and open it successfully with the credentials passing thru.
There may be some cached credentials for that resource.  Click Start --> Control Panel --> Users --> Advanced --> Manage Passwords
and see if some saved credentials are there for that resource.  If so, delete them.
