    whenever I go to the address for the cpanel on my server, it gives me a windows popup asking me for a username and password, none of the usernames or passwords, even root I have will work in this window, when i hit esc to close it, it then takes me to the regular login for cpanel which from there I can log in.

    anyone have any experience with a login window poping up ?

    I've encountered that "popup" (a http authentication request) many times. It's quite normal, whether or not it appears depends on the configuration of the server.

    For logins to not work in that window but to work in the other interface is abnormal though.

    any way to stop it from poping up ? having to log in twice is not only annoying, but confusing to customers.

    Unwanted login popup

    I was getting the cPanel login popup at random. But since running Spybot Search & Destroy it hasn't happened again. So I suspect a virus was trying to get at the login details.
