Can't browse internet through IE but can through Chrome and FF

Basically, we are behind a web proxy

I can browse internet through Firefox and also through Chrome but whenever I try to load anything through IE I get a prompt asking for me to log in, the log in prompts originates from the proxy.

I am using Windows 7 64-bit
IE 11
Chrome version 46.0.2490.71 m
Firefox version 33.0

All browsers are configured with the same proxy details which makes it a bit more confusing..

If you need anymore information please let me know, any ideas would be most helpful

Many thanks

Put proxy address in the INTRANET security zone in IE.
You might have the working browsers set to "remember" and auto-logon to your proxy...

You probably do NOT have a similar setting active on IE...

Set IE to ALSO "remember" the proxy logon settings (i.e. userid/password/cookies/etc.) in your browser settings...
Alternative:   Turn off proxy

Ok, I feel pretty dumb - I asked a colleague to come round and take a look..

Turns out i missed one of the characters from the users surname when authenticating with the proxy...

After I did that it works fine....
