I know of no way to remove this warning label. It is there for a purpose, and should not be removed.

Applet windows must have this warning so that end users can distinguish who is popping up this window that is asking them for their password.

If you visit a secure website that is running WinNT, a dialog box will come up that looks a *lot* like the Windows login. In fact, it sort of is. It may ask you for your Windows password.

What if a malicious website was to open a dialog box that looked exactly like this legitimate window? Then whoever wrote that applet would have your password! But not if you are smart enough to notice the little thing at the bottom that says "Unsigned Java Applet Window"
