How can I get rid of a pop-up which keeps inviting me to sign in to the MS Passport Network? I have a laptop running XP Pro with SP2. There are three user accounts: me as Administrator, me as a user, and my wife also as a user. When logged on as Administrator, if I open Windows Explorer (eg looking for files), and I click on either my Admin or User account folder-heading in the left-side panel, a popup appears on the right side (over the list of folders/files) with the heading "Sign in with Microsoft Passport Network", and the little boxes for sign-in name and password, and the OK and Cancel buttons. I usually have to cancel 2 or 3 times for the popup to go away. If I am not connected to the Internet at the time, a popup appears with the heading "Microsoft Passport Network Connection Error". If I click on my wife's account heading, the popup doesn't appear. Nor does it appear if I go into Windows Explorer when logged on as a user.
I have a Hotmail account and thus a MS Passport name and password - which I use only when actually at Microsoft websites. I do not use MSN Messenger or other such things.
Why is this "Sign-in... " popup appearing when I'm in Windows Explorer? It is bizarre and extremely irritating. How can I stop it?
