Since you have already removed the other user and the passwords for both users, go to Control Panel\Network and change the default Logon to Windows Logon. Then reboot. If the password prompt appears, don't enter anything and just click the OK button. You shouldn't see the prompt again.

Burnet,
I'm not sure what kind of PC brand you may have but I found a great document at www.hp.com to stop this very problem - titled HP Pavilion PCs - Windows 9X and ME Prompt for a Password at Startup. It gives you various scenerios to choose from. Hope this helps.

GO TO CONTROL PANEL, NETWORK. IN THE CONFIGURATION BOX REMOVE "CLIENT FOR MICROSOFT NETWORKS".

NO MORE WELCOME SCREEN

Tell what that breaks.

If you remove that item, you can't save logon passwords to the internet, email and such.

Always tell the full story.

Bob
