I found this in my notes from couple of years ago when working with

"For SharePoint to work without requiring a login, in Internet Explorer
go to Tools - > Internet Options -> Security -> Custom Level -> Go to
very bottom of list and check Automatic logon with current user name and
password. Also, to get Vista, IE7 and Office 2007 documents to open in
SharePoint without requiring authentication, create a bogus proxy entry
and then exclude * from using bogus proxy (Connections tab -> LAN
settings -> Advanced)"

I haven't made this change in awhile and IE8 may be different.
