Thanks for the reply,
I just was coming to say what I think happened. Let me know if you think
this is a good explaination because it don't prompt anymore.
Ok what I did was go to internet properties then went to Local Intranet. As
per instructions at Microsoft which said to click on the sites button from
this zone then take the check mark out of Automatically detect intranet
network. I did that and clicked ok. The prompts went away. Then I decided I
wanted to put the check back in the Auto Detect because another like machine
had that setting but no prompts.
Well with the check restored the prompts are still gone.
Now for what I think happened. I connect to a commercial Wi-Fi system, by
default when you open IE you are redirected to the company home page that is
actually a part of the gateway (IE intranet page) since I had my Aircard
turned off when I installed IE7 it did not detect the gateway by tripping
the automatic detect it now finds the intranet page.
That is all I can figure out as to what happened, anyway no prompts anymore.
