    Way off base here. Those files are archaic files relating to the
    Apache Software Foundations Http server. Not related to 'Windows
    Authentication' in any way.

    Eh? So, what you're saying is that you are trying to access a password
    protected website, but don't know how to do it - yes? What you need to
    do is enter a username and password when prompted. If you then tick
    the little box "remember password" you won't have to type the password
    next time.

    Ps. When posting questions it helps to provide information such as:

    * The software you are using, complete with revision/version details
    * What you are trying to achieve
    * What goes wrong, complete with exact error messages
    * What you have tried already
    * Steps to replicate the problem, if possible
