Question Need an Open Samba Share

I'm trying to set up an open Samba share on Debian Linux and for some reason I'm having problems with the 'open' part. I have a folder in Linux called /share that's owned by root:users and has 777 permissions:

drwxrwsrwx   2 root users  4096 Oct  2 12:19 share
Now my Samba configuration is as shown below:

fs3:/etc/samba# cat smb.conf
	workgroup = workgroup
	server string = Share
	obey pam restrictions = Yes
	pam password change = Yes
	passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
	passwd chat = *Enter\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *password\supdated\ssuccessfully* .
	unix password sync = Yes
	syslog = 0
	log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
	max log size = 1000
	dns proxy = No
	panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d
	security = share

	path = /share
	comment = Test Share
	writable = yes
	browsable = yes
	read only = no
Now when I try to browse to the share from any Windows machine, I'm prompted with a login box that doesn't allow me to change the username field. It's like grayed out or not editable for some reason. I just have an option for a password but since I have no idea what credentials it's asking for, I don't know how to fix this. Users just want an 'un-secure' share to dump files and folders in. Seems fairly simple but I've not used Samba in some time and have no idea what I'm doing...
