"Windows Security" popup asking me to enter my login information when visiting campus website

Windows 7 security popup. How do I disable this popup?

When trying to download a file from webcampus (our university's website), there is a "Windows Security" popup asking me to enter my login information. If I hit cancel for this popup, the file downloads anyway after a few second delay. How do I disable this popup? I am runing Windows 7 and IE 9.

 Thank you
