I don't know it I'm infected or not. After running windows updates, I found that instead of laptop booting to desktop, it stops at my user account signon icon which it did not do before the upates. It also goes to user account signon icon in screensaver & hibernation modes.
When I looked in control panel/user accounts, I found that in addition to admin & my regular user account, there was a new user: ASP.NET. If I go to delete it, it warns me that all settings for internet etc will be lost for this user.
My obvious question is: is this malware or did windows add something. One of the updates was Security Update for Microsoft.net vers 2.0.
If this is not malware, I have two questions. 1) Should I delete it?? 2) How do I change my settings so that signing on or hibernating etc doesnot go back to signon icon but right to desktop or program I was running. I am the only user on this machine.
Thanks in advance for any and all help.
