IE7 prompting for username and password all the time.

After upgrading one of our users to IE7 for testing purposes she is being prompted for her password all the time by the proxy server.   We have installed IE7 on five users in the building and none of the other users are experiencing this problem.  We need to find the answer because soon 5000+ users will be upgraded to IE7

Yea neither one worked.  I dont' know what the deal is its only on one workstation.  I can not reproduce this issue.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled it 3 times with no changes.

In IE, trying going to Tools-->Internet Options-->Advanced tab.
Look for the "Enable Integrated Windows Authentication" option and make sure that's checked.  If not, uncheck, apply, check, apply.  Close all your IE 7 windows and reopen...

That, of course, is assuming that you're trying to use integrated windows authentication on that proxy...
