did you try to use any other browser ? so just try first Firefox also this can be due to security application running on your pc like antivirus, antispyware so just check there setting and configure it properly.

to disable password in IE try this
Open explorer > Tools > Options >Security Tab >Custom > check Password options> If that is unchecked, then it may be problem due to another application which require details so check for Firewall also if there is no such reason present then scan online your pc with good antivirus web site as this problem can be due to virus.

try this administrative tools > local security policy > local policy > security options>'Network access

check sharing and security model for local accounts.now set that to guest only, this will stopped asking for passwords.
