If your going to supply the same username and a null password all the time,
there really isn't much point in setting it to use Client for M$ Networks
as it's primary logon, 'Windows Logon' will do just fine, then (so long as
you don't have multiple user profiles setup and put in a null password) it
will only ever prompt you for a username and password when you Start ->
Shutdown -> Close all programs and logon as a different user. This won't
solve your problem directly, but it'll stop that stupid dialog coming up.

Okay onto the problem with the other machine, have you tried Start ->
Shutdown -> Close all programs and logon as a different user? Have you
tried uninstalling and re-installing 'Client for M$ Networks'?
