CredentialHelperSelector keeps popping up, how do I fix

Edited

There are tons of resolutions on when SourceTree popup which asks for credentials.  However, I could not find any fix on this specific error.  When I clone a repository in  SourceTree the following screen pops up.  I checked the radio button for a few of them and clicked Select.  This didn't anything as the popup came back.  Also, the options are repeated.  I clicked Cancel about 5-10x and the popup goes away and I move forward with Commit/Pull.  It allows me to do this but the popup keeps coming and I just hit Cancel over and over.  I have to hit Cancel about 20-30x while I commit/pull.   The popup appears randomly throughout the day and/or when I am commiting/pulling/pushing in Sourcetree.  How do I resolve this issue? 

 

Attempted the following with no luck:

1.  I followed the steps in this URL: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Sourcetree-questions/CredentialHelperSelector/qaq-p/1334704 and it still doesnt work.

2.  Avoided checking the "Git Credential Manager" checkbox during the Git for Windows installer

I was same to you. But I found the reason. I hope it will help you.

In win10, you can open the file ( C:\Users\icg_s\.gitconfig ) and remove the code:

[credential "helperselector"]
selected = s

After searching and trying a ton of solutions, this worked for me finally.

Thank you so much for your great answer!
