I am having an issue with a new Sharepoint 2010 Foundation implemenation that I cant seem to nail down.

All users are sufferring an issue where when they log in to the site it seems that they keep getting prompted yet again each time they open a document to reauthenticate. So, no matter how many times they log in, if they try to open a new document they get prompted again to put in there credenitals to open each document.

My users are on Office 2010 and these are the current settings in my sharepoint central administration.

Authentication Type: Windows
Enable anonymous access: not checked
Integrated Windows Authentication: Checked off
Enable Client Integration: Yes

Any ideas?

    You need to add your sharepoint site as a Trusted Location in EACH of your office apps (word, excel, powerpoint, access, etc etc).

    There are ADM files that you can download from Microsoft to push these settings out by GPO.  Otherwise, you'll need to visit each PC and set this up manually.

    You need to add it as a trusted site but under the "Intranet" section.

    hope this helps!

    I added the sharepoint site to all users local intranet sites in IE and the credentials went away.
    I did this by using group policy for all my users.

    Thank you all for your help and points will be distributed to all that helped me find this solution.
