    Question Prompting for Authentication

    Right, i'm fed up now lol.

    I have spent weeks researching this issue with no joy.

    Just recently we have started migrating all our schools over to Windows 7 Professional and Office 2010. This has all gone smoothly apart from one little hiccup.

    Whenever a teacher tries to open an office document over the internet (not sharepoint) e.g. http://www.primaryresources.co.uk/ic...ict_levels.doc they are requested to enter their network credentials as we are behind an authenticated proxy.

    This is our setup:
    Win 7
    Office 2010
    IE9
    Authenticated proxy
    Teachers have locked down profiles

    I have tried numerous fixes such as changing BasicAuthLevel in the registry, adding the site to trusted sites/intranet sites.

    Nothing seems to work. Even choosing remember credentials on the pop up.

    Please don't suggest using a different browser as this is not a realistic solution (6982 computers over 76 schools).

    Please can anyone help me with this?? I'm losing what little hair I actually have.

    Thanks
