Boot holding down the shift key.
Go to your extensions folder and remove all AtEase extensions
Do the same in your preference folder, and check the startup folder too.

You can uninstall system software by going to the system Folder and removing the System Suitcase and the Finder(put them in the trash). Restart with the system CD in holding down the C key.Empty the trash. Rename the system folder on your hard drive and start the installer off the CD.
Why do you want to reformat your drive? This does not help in the same way it helps FAT drives. You would probably be better off buying Norton Utilities and using SpeedDisk to defragment.

The password was designed to keep people out. When does the password appear? What machine is it?

Hi....
Removing ATEase the way cdouglass recommends, IS NOT recommended.
The dialog makes me think that someone has checked one of the boxes in the Appleshare volumes.
Trash your AppleShare Prep from your System Folder preferences, a new one will be created on boot, you will not get this dialog again, unless of course you check that box in the chooser.
regards
