Log on screen options?

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

Hello,

I have a single user home computer running WinXP Pro. It was set so that
there was no logon screen during bootup. It would automatically open to my
account without my having to click on me as the user.

Then I installed Microsoft Net Framework 1.1 which forced the logon screen
and I now have to click on my name to logon.

I have three accounts showing:

Me - Administrator
ASP Net Machine - Computer Administrator
Guest - Off

Is there a way to make the bootup not require clicking on my account to
logon?

Thanks a lot,

Bob

    Hello,

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

    Hello Anando,

    Thank you for the information. I added the Service Pack and it worked
    perfectly.

    Out of curiosity, I installed Net Framework because I downloaded a Font
    program that required it to run the program. I really had no idea what it
    was all about. Is this a safe thing to do? Is there any downside to having
    installed Net Framework? Just checking to be sure that I am OK.

    Thanks Again,

    Bob

    I'm not Anando, but the .net framework is a runtime file needed
    to run programs written with
    ..net. It's roughly analogous to the old vbrunXXX.dll files needed
    to run programs written in Visual Basic.

    There's no downside to having it installed.

    No, you are absolutely fine provided you have the latest updates from http://update.microsoft.com

    Thanks Guys,

    I ran Windows Update and added the security update. All seems to be working
    well.

    Much Appreciated,
