On some sites, a password popup box appears when clicking on a link which leads you to a securec page.
It's not a login screen, but really the password box of (in this case) the Windows OS.
Question: how is such box activated and how works the mechanics behind it?

thats folder security applied at OS level by someone with administration access, basically it takes out the Anonymous Users priveliges and will only allow certain people access to the directory

normally they are administrators system and whatever secondary accounts are manually applied to it

what a very late reply Smile
