ASP.NET in my user accounts. Why?

  Ive 12:47 29 Nov 2003

XP Home. I normally turn on my pc and it goes straight to my desktop, now however it firstly goes to welcome screen where I have to log on which I dont want to have to do. The only reason I can see for this is that ASP.NET machine a.... limited account password protected, has appeared in my user accounts, but I dont know why it is there or how it got there. Is it something I can safely delete in user accounts (delete the account) or has it appeared for a reason.

Yes this has come up before. You can safely delete the account.

VOG. I deleted account ok.
Computer still does not go straight to my desktop on startup though, as it used to. Any ideas.

Any one else got any ideas on how to go straight to desktop on start up without having to log on.

Have you downloaded any Windows updates lately?

Something similar happened to me - I have a single user account yet afrer an update it kept insisting that I click on the (only) account.

I removed the update and got back to normal.

Sorry, I can't remember which update but it was NOT a critical one.
