Ie8 stopped prompts for username/password

There is a private web site that requires username/password to access. I access this site from three different computers on a daily basis. IE8 on xp, IE8 on Vista and IE8 on windows 7. The xp and vista computers work fine, IE prompts me for username/password. The IE8/w7 computer no longer prompts for the username/password, just displays a 'You are not authorized to view this page' error 401.2
This happened from one day to the next. It worked, now it doesn't.

Any suggestions?

  1. Have you thought to use a different browser?
    http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ie.html

    If you can provide the URL, other users might be able to test the access with IE8.
  2. Hi necomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

    IE8 isn't the best web surfer today, do this two steps:

    1- THIS, only do the reset step, if doesn't work, continue with the 2nd

    2- THIS

    This site is a subscription based music site. When working, IE8 will stream and use windows media player to play the stream.
    When using firefox, the music file is downloaded then played. I only want to play the stream, not download.

    Thanks,
