I have an asp.net application which someone else created and I am trying to fix.

Most Probably you may have to change the javascript code that produces the pop up window.

Alternatively
you can try Basic authentication syntax in url  (if this is the case)
Something like  http://username:password@theserver/gen.ext
you may have to replace  http: with https:

or try with HTTPClient

Unfortunately, basic authentication URL's do not work in IE without client side changes:

You can check the headers being sent between the browser and the server to find out which URL triggers basic authentication. I recommend livehttpheaders for firefox (http://livehttpheaders.mozdev.org/). Look for a HTTP/1.x 401 header. Once you know which URL triggers authentication, reconfigure the webserver to remove authentication.
