  • Do you have any checked out files those are being used in master page? meaning scripts or styles etc. If so then check in them all Jan 13, 2016 at 15:17
  • Is this a new issue (e.g. recent upgrade to IE 11)? Was the portal recently built and/or upgraded (e.g. authentication was configured at the web application and IIS levels)? Jan 13, 2016 at 15:25

Go to Internet Options -> Security Tab -> Trusted Sites -> Click Custom level.. button -> Scroll all the way down and set Logon = "Automatic logon with current user name and password"

That should do the trick.

After making sure all the IE and Windows settings were correct, I fixed my user's issue by uninstalling and then reinstalling IE 11. Before, the user had to login to SharePoint every time he rebooted, even though he selected the option to remember his login and to not prompt again. After reinstalling, SharePoint remembered his login perfectly, even after rebooting. This was a very hard problem to figure out and the solution is maddening, but at least it works now!
