You too Craig. I have had long running emails with MS on this (I'm not sure they know the answer) however this is what has been recommended to me. Go into user accounts, choose your name, Top right Manage my network passwords, remove all that it will allow, close and reboot. You will probably get asked for your passwords again, enter and tick remember and that should sort the problem. But, I have found that if you do any major alterations to your system or load new software it may come back and you have to repeat the procedure. Sorry it is not more permanant, I'm not sure I was believed until I sent them a screen shot. Best of luck. Ian

ok go into Internet Options within either control Panel or Internet Explorer and if your on Dial Up then make sure you only have Only Dial my Connection enabled and if your on Broadband make sure Never Dial a connection is enabled. Also if Broadband click on Lan Settings and make sure Auto Detect settings is enabled.
