It's part of the .NET Framework

It's also harmless, if not mildly annoying if it disrupts the automatic login.

if you still want to keep it, without having problem with auto login, then just delete it (delete account and files). Next, run the update again to reinstall it. This time the ASP.NET account will not be created.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
