It isn't Windows that's asking, it's the computer BIOS (Basic Input/Output System).

Therefore you need to go into the BIOS Setup and disable the power-on password in there.

Watch the screen when the manufacturer's splash-screen appears at boot time.
At the bottom, (or it might be further up) you should see "Press X to enter Setup", where X is replaced by the actual key you need to press & hold until the BIOS Setup appears.

When you make any changes in there, remember to "Save & Exit" (usually F10).
