You might specify if the "window" is the BlogEngine.Net login page or a standard "authorization required" popup. If it is the "authorization required" popup, you have one or more files on the server with permission issues. Your IIS log will have entries similar to this example line:

2010-06-03 15:32:30 W3SVC1 POST /localhost/mypage.aspx - 80 - BROWSER INFO 302 0 0

You should look for the last part of each line which has the HTTP Code, look for 401 and 403 errors. Even security permissions on images can cause this.

The error message is:

Access to the path
'C:\....\...\App_Data\datastore\extensions\akismetfilter.xml' is denied

I checked the folder and file permissions and it seems ok, I used to press scape when the Authorization window appers then every thing is working fine, but it cuases problems for the users, I found a huge number of errors in the log file, so how can I solve this problem??

Try this, it might help with permissions issues:
