Annoying network credentials dialog keeps popping up - Windows XP Home
Posted on 2007-10-08
I have a computer on which is installed Windows XP Home. Everything seems to be OK except there is a very frustrating problem which I will describe here:
1. In the past, someone has linked to a remote folder at their school - for example folders.myschool.com and must have logged in with their username and password.
2. Now, about 15 minutes after starting up there suddenly pops up a username/password dialog for this remote folder. No attempt to close this dialog works, in fact more and more of them pop up and they really get in the way of everything.
I need to get rid of this constant attempt to connect to this network location - I have deleted the relevant place from Network Places but it seems to keep replacing itself!
Can anyone advise me on how to get rid of this annoying dialog in Windows XP Home?
