Enter Network Password prompt

  Nortius Maximus 18:59 12 Jul 2006

This morning, after some frustration, I removed by old anti-virus (McAfee) and installed AVG.

Everything seems fine, except every few times Outlook sends/receive I'm asked for to Enter Network Password.

I'm not on a network.

No matter how many times I enter the details and click "save this password" it comes up every few minutes asking the same thing. If I cancell it the send/receive fails, if I enter the deatils it's ok for a couple minutes then its back.

What is it and how do I stop it.

go to network connections, click your current connection and hit Properties, if Microsoft Client For Networks and / or File and Printer Sharing are ticked, untick them.

Thanks for the reponse brundle, but following your instructions I don't have options for Microsoft Client For Networks and / or File and Printer Sharing - unless I'm looking in the wrong place, that is.

Should have earlier XP Pro and Outlook 2003.

Also tried Googling for answers, anything I find works fine - until about one minute after I think it's fixed, then it does it again. AAaah!
