I guess you the provider has enable question-answer which require you to provide that information during user creation as well. Go to web.config and disable that feature by setting requiresQuestionAndAnswer="false"

<membership>
      <providers>
        <clear />
        <add name="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider"
             type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider, System.Web,&#xD;&#xA;             Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"

             connectionStringName="ApplicationServices"
             enablePasswordRetrieval="false"
             enablePasswordReset="true"
             requiresQuestionAndAnswer="false"
             requiresUniqueEmail="true"
             passwordFormat="Hashed" …
