Get rid of authentication prompt while opening Excel or Word files on Windows 7

By Perry

This shows how I got rid of authentication prompt while opening Excel or Word files on Windows 7. This was happening when I open Office files placed on my network location from IE8 or Firefox. Putting corresponding sweblink in trusted site doesn't worked.

After lot of research on this, I found a hotfix at http://support.microsoft.com/Default.aspx?id=943280 and it worked fine.
