Default Unusual Authentication Request Encountered


Have come across this strange authentication request several times recently, but only when accessing the one particular thread shown. Of course I have not responded by entering an id or password; simply cancelling the request allows normal access to the thread. Any ideas?

I have never seen that. Try scanning your system for malware or adware of whatever that stuff is called. Smart, though, not to enter your info. Just keep canceling it--because it's not from us!

Someone else also had this problem recently, so we contacted tech support and he said that it looked like someone was trying to hotlink a photo. He has removed the photo, so hopefully it won't pop up anymore!
