How to disable a Windows Security window when Outlook 2010 starts

The OS on the computer is Vista.  Whenever I start Outlook 2010, a window appears with the title Windows Security that asks for a user name and password.  If I fill in the information or press Cancel, Outlook still sends and receives mail.

This window doesn't seem to be a part of Outlook.

How can I disable it?

Thanks.

The removal of the stored password didn't change things. I still get the little window asking for authentication.
