Thread: .NET Framework has created an XP User Account

    Since installing .NET and World Wind my PC start up now goes to a screen to select my User Acct, even though it's the only one shown!
    I tried using the Auto Logon feature of MS's TweakXP but it's not maintaining the AutoLogon settings. It'll start up into desktop the first time, I go check Tweak and auto-logon is turned off.
    Obviously the next restart goes to the "Select User Acct" screen again.

    Can I delete the .NET user acct without affecting World Wind ?

    Other than that I'm not sure what else I can do. Tweak reinstall made no change.

    I really would not delete the account itself. When you install the .net framework, it creates a very limited account to run with for security purposes (it's not granted admin privileges) that stays pretty much hidden.

    As for the login problem, I have read that it's a bug and it has been solved with a recent service pack for .net framework 1.1 Run windows update and make sure you have all the latest updates.

    The NET version was downloaded yesterday via Windows Update so is the latest vers.

    I went into Control Panel/User Accounts and deleted the account.
    WW still seems to work fine.

    I was told the .NET user account is only needed for Developers.

    Had the same problem...

    Use MS Powertoys Tweak UI - Autologin

    In Windows you must have your user password set (not BLANK) - then write it in that Autologin section in TweakUI....

    if you don't use password it's not working...
