When Microsoft first released the .Net 1.1 software, it was the default setting to start your computer this way for security reasons. So many people complained about this and tried to modify their registry, damaging their operating system in the process that Microsoft changed this with their first critical .net update.
Just do as River Rat suggests and update your software, that will take care of the problem. Just so you know, there have been at least two critical .net updates since its release so you will have to use the Windows update site at least three times to be sure you have gotten them all. Make sure you run Windows update until you installed all the critical updates available, not just the .net ones, they are critical for a reason. The other updates you may install at your own discretion.
Now if you will forgive me for getting on my soapbox for a minute;
You should also get in the habit of updating your operating system (and your security programs) software at least once a week. It only takes a few minutes to check for updates and it will (sooner or later) prevent you from spending hours trying to remove some garbage you picked up off the internet from your computer.
Make checking for these updates a regular part of your surfing habits, you will not regret it.
Update, update, update and after you do that, update again.
