What is adserver.adtech.de and why does it want me to login 3 times every time I open a page on this site. I cancel each time and get the page, but it's damned annoying.

It is a site that promotes ads on these pages... that helps keep it free.

Not sure why you are asked to login 3 times.

Hosts files will block ads.

It is only on this site that I run into this problem. Any other ideas???

For a guess.. You are probably already running some sort of ad blocker, or a modified hosts file.

Which is redirecting adserver.adtech.de to your local machine.

So when it tries to contact your local machine using the in built security, it fails and asks you for a user/password.

To fix it remove the adserver.adtech.de site from the ad blocker / hosts file you have. You will then not get the login prompt. But you will see ads on this site. Which help keep it free. Try to click though a couple of them every now and again :)
