    I am running XP-Pro SP1, with all the service packs updated.

    Since I installed Framework 1.1, the log on screen is now asking me to log
    on by pressing on an Icon with my name on it. I originally had the machine
    set up so that when I start it up, it comes directly to the desktop. I was
    required to install Framework to use some specific software's that I have to

    I found a setting using TweakUI that is supposed to allow the single user to
    be logged on automatically. When I apply this check mark, the fix works for
    one re-start only. After that, it goes back to the asking for a manual log

    Does anyone know an easy fix for this?

    I tried at the system prompt, CONTROL USERPASSWORD2 , and when I used that
    one, the logon went back to being like the first install (birthday) of the
    operating system, which is not good for me. Fortunately, I was able to put
    things back again, but still have this logon issue I would like to resolve.

    Hi Jerry

    Had the same problem myself earlier this week on a new Acer T310, used Tweak
    UI to try and fix just like you.
    And again just like you it would only stick for one reboot.

    In the end we found setting autologon on then shutting down to power off
    fixed it.

    XP Home, SP2 in this case

  3. You have 2 options to fix this problem.

    1. Delete the ASP.NET user from the User Accounts in Control Panel.
    2. Install the .NET Framework 1.1 update

    I would go with option 2.
