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?
