sharepoint will not stop prompting for a password

Last Modified: 2015-03-03
I have tried the AuthServerList setting in the registry.
I have tried adding the site to the intranet and changing the prompting to automatically login as current user
I have deleted the user credentials in the credential manager.
I have added the site to the trusted site

nothing seems to solve the issue.  the user can go to our shared site that is on our intranet say http://prettysite

it shows them logged in in the background but prompts for a username and password.  I type it in and hit remember and it comes right back and its confirmed the correct credentials.  

I can then hit cancel and the box will go away and I can navigate the site and then when I click on a document it ask for the credentials again.   if I hit cancel I can open the file and so on.

it is just annoying to get the popup.  how can I prevent this?
