I have an area of my site that is password protected.  that works fine.  However, any time I click on anything elsze under that directory it asks for username and password again.  It didn't used to do this.  Could someone help with that?

Try using another computer to test it.
It could be internet explorer/windows not remembering the username and password properly.

It is not a server problem anyway  

You might have a piece of graphics or something, linked from somewhere else on those pages.. it tends to behave strange if you have that..

This particular prolem occur to me on a bunch of websites!

hmmm, well I looked for any graphics linked elsewhere and didn't see anything.  Is there another way I could password protect that area that would prevent this problem?

Try emptying the directory; Download then delete everything in it, then re-upload everything.  My passworded directories seem to be working okay.
