by DickyDum / November 21, 2006 7:33 AM PST

Running Windows XP SP2.
Since loading up a commercial program that incorrectly loaded and I had to completely remove,I now get the LOG IN screen appear,which never came up before. I am the only user and would like to get rid of the User Log In Screen. Is this possible?
Thanks for any help.

I'd suggest setting a password on the account, then using TweakUI (a free download) to set up an automatic login. Use Google if unsure on the details of how to do either part.

Thanks for info but I will hold off loading TweakUI for the time being.

Many thanks jackson, TweakUI did the trick. I did not have to set anything, just to set start up without any LOG IN.
Once again
Thanks for HELP.

MICROSOFT.NET FRAMEWORK could be the problem??
by bently / November 22, 2006 1:10 PM PST

Go to Control Panel, Add or Remove.
Check to see if you have " MICROSOFT.NET FRAMEWORK".

It can be removed using "REMOVE" in the ADD or REMOVE feature in Control Panel.

I installed a new HP 4-in-one printer, and the HP software installed "MICROSOFT.NET FRAMEWORK".

"MICROSOFT.NET FRAMEWORK". changed my login to where I have to click on a LOGIN icon to get to my desktop.

Removing it, brought my boot back to normal.

However...when I remove "MICROSOFT.NET FRAMEWORK". , my printer will not work properly, but that the only program that it affected on my computer.

I have never used the log-in system or entered any password. However I will certainly try a blank but I would have to delete my name to achieve this.
Many Thanks.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
