Hi

I have installed Windows XP Pro Service Pack 2. I then installed the following on my computer :

1) .NET Framework 1.1
2) .NET Framework 3.5

After that I had to click on my user account every time that I loaded Windows XP.

With the help of several websites I found out that .NET Framework 1.1 had creating "ASP .NET Machine Account" which was causing the login situation.
Microsoft's website advised me to download and install

3) .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1

so that "the automatic logon issue was corrected along with further security enhancements"

The .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 seemed to install successfully but I still have to login every time.

My Control Panel reads :
Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1
Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Hot Fix (928366KB)
Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 1
Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 Service Pack 1
Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5



They suggested an alternative :

Start > Run and type in "control userpasswords2" >Ok.
Uncheck "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" option, and click Ok.


This seems like a compromise but I'm concerned that .NET Framework Service Pack 1 has not solved the problem.

Can anyone please offer me some suggestions?

Q. Could I uninstall v3.5 and v1.1, then re-install v1.1 and v1.1 Service Pack 1, and finally re-install 3.5? Would this help?

This may be a note for the future, but when you install .net framework 1.1, install the Service Pack 1 straight after it, without rebooting. This will get round the spontaneous log-in chore that suddenly appears with the .net framework.

This is a long-known standing issue with net framework 1.1 and Windows XP.

Thanks, Neil.

Is it OK for me to uninstall and reinstall .NET Framework 1.1 and .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 without causing any problems?

You can delete the ASP .Net account. It's not needed unless you are doing active .Net development.

Alternatively, you can install Microsoft's TweakUI and use it's Logon utility to specify what userid (and password) you want logged on automatically when XP boots.

OK. I'll post back in about a week's time because I've got some work to do on my computer and I can't afford anything to go wrong with my system at the moment!

UPDATE

I uninstalled :

1) .NET Framework 3.5 (and previous versions including 2.0)
2) .NET Framework 1.1
3) My Graphics Card Driver which required either or both of the .NET Framework software (ATI Catalyst Control Center)

I then re-installed :

1) .NET Framework 1.1 AND .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 BEFORE RESTARTING MY COMPUTER (as suggested)
2) .NET Framework 3.5
3) My Graphics Card Driver

The result : Now I don't have to login every time my computer starts. Great!

Thank you very much for your superb advice. I would never have found this on Microsoft's website. I will also install Microsoft's TweakUI if and when I create another account as a guest account.
