    Step 1.

    right-click on CreateUserWizard control and select 'Customize Create User Step'

    Step 2.

    remove Sequrity Question/Answer labels, textboxes and required field validators

    Step 3.

    Add the following section to your web.config if you want to implement this functionality for your app only or if you want modify machine.config and set requiresQuestionAndAnswer="false" right there, but keep in mind that this is a GLOBAL setting.

            <remove name="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider"></remove>
            <add name="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider"
                  type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider, System.Web, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"
              passwordStrengthRegularExpression="" />
