Hi,
I uninstalled my old HP printer and installed a new one last night and now
when I start my computer up, instead of the welcome screen I have to log in
by clicking on my user icon. I am the only user on this computer so I never
had to do this before, when starting up I used to get directly to my desktop
I did not have to log in. I went to user accounts and now there are 2 users,
ASP.Net Machine A and me the administrator, can I delete this second account?
Where did if come from? This started happening right after I uninstalled my
old printer and before I installed the new one, because the first time it
happened was when I restarted my computer after uninsalling the printer.
Does anyone know what I should do about this?
Thanks, Val

What is the ASP.NET Machine Account?

The Welcome to Windows screen appears when you start Windows XP
after you install the .NET Framework 1.1

Carey,
As far as I know I did not install anything called .NET Framework 1.1 but I
looked in my Add remove programs and there is a Microsoft .NET Framework
1.1! How could this get installed by uninstalling my printer? Can I uninstall
it? Should I just do a System restore and start over with uninstalling the
old printer and installing the new one?
Thanks, Val

Simply visit the Windows Update web site and download the critical
updates for .NET Framework. It is required for some software applications
now and in the future.

Will this stop the problem I have with startup, so that I won't have to login
at the Welcome screen?
