Today, I was browsing through windows explorer, in my c: windows/documents
and settings/ don burnette/ folder. Upon going into the folder, I got a pop
up window prompting me to sign in to Passport. This has just started today,
and the prompt comes up as soon as I open the don burnette folder.

Why would I be getting this popup when exploring into this folder? I usually
go in there on a weekly basis to delete the temp and temp internet files
folders.

Usually, one "signs on" using Passport, not "sing in".
What song are you singing into Passport?

Sorry, typo.

When I open my " don burnette" folder in documents and settings, I
immediately get a prompt to sign in to net passport.

It just started doing this, any ideas why?

Your system has been infected by spyware. Better known as .NET Passport.

But why did it just start doing this? I go into that folder every weekend to
empty it, and only today did it start prompting for me to sign in.

Sorry but I don't let spyware anywhere near my XP box. Go and ask Carey
Frisch {MVP] for help. He'll tell you all about the wonderful eXPerience
you're now getting. That's if he has time to get beyond correcting your
typos.

Best of luck!

Don, is there an internet shortcut loose in the folder? If yes, try moving
it into a subfolder and see if the problem continues. (I haven't seen this
happen in XP yet but it occurred in other versions of Windows. Worth a try
anyhow.)

Also check the system for spyware and virus. I like AdAware for detecting
and removing adware and spyware. An online scanner is good for a second
opinion if your resident antivirus app isn't picking up anything:

It is a strange problem. Am sorry that I don't have any more suggestions
for you.

Is this happening on an external drive and you used a backup? Do you play
Halo from your PC? Is ASP.Net updated, IIS, Office is fine if installed?
Am very curious about this one.

Added info:

Go to Start/Run and type in: control userpasswords2. Once there:

Advanced, Manage Passwords. Or, Control Panel, User Accounts, select a user
then Manage my network passwords.


..Net Passport Member Services: http://memberservices.passport.net/

Go to Start/Run and type in: control userpasswords2. Advanced/Manage
Passwords/Remove.

Tip:

Add Control Userpasswords2 to the Control Panel (Line 1)

Hi Kelly,

No, not from an external drive or backup.
Do not have Halo.
Asp.net is updated, also am current with all windows XP updates, as well as
office.

I'll look at some of the other suggestions when I have more time, gotta run
to work.

Thanks,


Don Burnette

Hi Kelly,

I am not sure what you are suggesting I do when I get in the control
userpasswords2 advanced/manage passwords option.
When I get there, it lists "passport.net\*(passport) . This is the only
entry listed in the edit or remove option.
Are you suggesting I remove this entry?


Thanks,

Don Burnette

You can drag things out over days, can't you. I notice you don't give any information that a diagnosis could be made on. What's in the folder.
