As far as I know that should only pop up if you forgot your username and or password and your trying to retrieve them.

Hello Thomas,

If you filled out the password hint field when you either created or changed the password for the user account, then the password hint will only display on the log on screen after you have typed an incorrect password and clicked on OK.

Hope this helps,
