    Prior to installing .NET Framework v 1.1, booting sequence went from the WinXP splash screen, to the Welcome sceen and then finishing with the desktop...ready to go.
    Now, with .NET Framework, I get a split Welcome screen with having to click on my name on the right side and wait for it to "load your personal settings" before it goes to the desktop.
    An option in user accounts allows unchecking the Welcome screen but then you have to type in your password. (Mine is blank, being I'm the only one using this PC.)
    On shutting down, before installing .NET Framework, the choice was Shutdown, Restart or Cancel. Now there's a drop down list.
    Can't seem to find how to have .NET Framework on board and still have login/logoff the way it was.
    Paint.NET requires .NET Framework 1.1 to be installed.
    Using WinXPSP2

    You need to go into Windows Updates as you will find there was an update Hotfix KB886903 for 1.1. .Net Framework.

    When you have downloaded and updated this hotfix you will be able to logon as before and you won't have to click on your name to get to your desktop.

    If you don't have auto update for Windows selected, which I assume you don't, just get into a daily routine of checking for updates and use the Custom Install selection.

    I know that HotFix works as I performed 2 consequtive clean installations of windows last week and had the same issue after first installing .Net Framework.
