I did some Windows Updates yesterday and everything went in fine with no problems. The reason for doing it was I took an early restore operation to get rid of the Browser Choice system.
In so doing, this morning when I switched on, I noticed I had to go through the Log in window where I pick my name out and it loads my setting etc. I haven't done this for years and wondered why it should suddenly happen.
Looking through here, I saw how to check out and change accounts. When I went throu' that sequence, there was another account added to my machine listed as ASP.NET. This I think is something to do with Mr Microsoft.
I wonder what right they have to add accounts to personal machines with out even asking?
I have deleted the account and all the associated files etc. and it seems to have done the trick. I now go straight in to Windows XP with none of the auxiliary windows popping up.
I assume this will cause no trouble on the machine?
They have been doing it for years now and like you i don't think it should be allowed. At a rough guess probably about 25% of computer owners will have this on there computers and never noticed it before.
