Hi there: I have in the past refused to accept .net framework as an update, or when it arrives have add/removed. ( reason- because I hate logging in on my machine, and I prefer to look at a wallpaper rather than a windows login screen.)
Why is .Net Framework necessary, and which one should I be using if so? It is no longer on the Windows update site, so I have to go to elsewhere in MS to get it, and there seems to be many choices there of Net framework. It comes with my HP all in one ( on disc).
Do I need it? Why? Which? and if so- can I get around the mandatory log-in screen then?------ Thanks for any help here, this thing makes me nuts, Joey! :thumbsup:

.NET framework is essentially a collection of tools for developing software. I downloaded it yesterday for my new computer and I don't have to log in.

Like JAVA, it's designed to run things you use on the net. But take a look at This Site for more info.

Installing net framework adds a new user to your machine (I believe it is asp). Go to control panel, users, and remove that new user. Netframework will still be functional but your login should return to what it was (or wasn't) previously.
