Password prompts in SourceTree

I'm using SourceTree on a Windows 7 laptop. Whenever I do a push/pull in a terminal window, it requires me to enter my password.  This is a real inconvenience.

I've saved my password under Tools | Options | Authentication per the screenshot below and that doesn't work.

What can I do to prevent the constant password prompting?

Thanks for the reply...will do.
