If you are finding thatdocuments (and Word, Excel etc) don't display well in your Internet Explorer (IE) browser, either prompting you for a password or just showing a blank screen, then you are encountering a well-known problem with IE.
The best solution is to alter your settings so that IE doesn't try to embed the Office documents within it's own display, and instead, will download the document and tell to display the document normally (as a helper application).
Here's how to change the setting (in Windows):
1. Double-click My Computer.
2. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options.
3. On the File Types tab, in the Registered file types box, click to select the file type that you want to change. For example, click to select PPT Microsoft Presentation.
4. Click Advanced.
5. In the Edit File Type dialog box, click to clear the Browse in same window check box, and then click OK.
6. Click Close to close the Folder Options dialog box.
Alternatively you can use a different browser like Firefox, Mozilla or Opera.
