I just upgraded my IE to version 6.0.2800.1106

I had an application which resides in tomcat and used jcifs for authentication and single signon.
However, being successfully tested previously (before my IE upgrade), it begin to prompt me for username and password (BASIC Authentication style)

I've read through some FAQ on this issue and also visited the site http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q258063  but no matter how i configure, I was not able to by pass the authentication pop up from IE 6.0

I configured my web.xml as follow:

 <filter-name>NTLM HTTP Authentication Filter</filter-name>



    <!-- NTLM HTTP Authentication only works with MSIE-->
             <filter-name>NTLM HTTP Authentication Filter</filter-name>

The weird thing is, the authentication pop up only occurred to some of the machine in my office but not all, and the fact that we are all using the same IE version 6.0,
