Supressing Window Prompt in SharePoint 2010 Intranet Sites

Some of the users for the SharePoint sites were facing repetative Windows Prompt to provide the credentials. This can be supressed if for the users in Win 7 by adding the URL of the site with the user credentials (This works for any site though) with the following steps:
1. Go to Windows Credential Manager. You can do so by typing "Credential Manager" in the Win7 Search Box or by navigating through Control Panel --> User Accounts --> Credential Manager.
2. Click on the Add a Windows credential in the Windows Credential Section.
3. Add the URL of the Site, User ID and password of the user. You need to make sure not to add http in the URL of the site else it will not accept and throw an error.
4. Once this is done you will be able to access the site without the credential pop up again and again. The only glitch is if we change the password, we will need to update the pwd here as it is not automatically synced up.
