Question about that: If you're not running a web server (or if you're
running a web server without ASP) on your machine and you have this account
as a result of installing .NET 1.1, can you safely delete it?
What else uses the ASP account besides, well, ASP?

I think you can just delete the account, but keep the files when asked.
This will get rid of the log-on screen.
