Dot-net Framework as 'User'?

Hi. I don't do any software development, but had to download and install
dot-net Framework 1.1 in order to install a Lantronics device-installer
utility. I see that Framework has added itself to my computer's user's list,
and although the icon is not on the screen at password-protected bootup, it
has changed the sign-in screen somewhat. Can I safely remove Framework as a
user through Control Panel/Users and still have all the required
functionality? Thanks -Jim

I don't believe that the .NET framework will change any login screens..

Hi, Cody,

The only thing that changed on the sign-in screen was that the box
disappeaed next to my name where I put in the password. Now I have to click
on my name to make the box come up. I think this is because dot-net is
listed as another user on the computer, meaning that I am no longer the only
one. However, dot-net does not come up on the sign-in screen, as if it were
a 'stealth' user. I just wonder if I delete it as a user under Control Panel
if the utility will still work okay.

Hi Jim,

Did you mean the ASPNET user account it created?

BTW, did you try if you can press keyboard down-arrow on the login screen to
bring the password box to your name? So you don't have to click on your
name.

Yes, you're right,

It is the asp.net account, which claims to be password protected, but
which does not pop up on the log-in screen at boot.
I know nothing of this developer software, but had to install dot-net
Framework 1.1 in order to install a third-party utility. My questions are:

1) If I uninstalll Framework 1.1, will the other utility still run, and...
2) If I leave Framework 1.1 in there but simply delete the asp.net user
account are things likely still to run?

Many thanks, Jim

I believe the asp.net user account is for running ASP.NET process. If you
are not hosting ASP.NET web server on your PC, I think you can simply delete
the account. If you want to be 100% safe, create a Restorepoint, rename the
account and try to restart and run your apps, you can delete the account if
everything still works fine.

Uninstall Framework 1.1 run-time most likely will cause your third-party
utility error, since it required it.

If you are not a Framework developer, you do not need to install Framework
1.1 SDK. You can uninstall Framework 1.1 SDK and install Framework 1.1
run-time instead.

Thanks again, Wencheng,

Our company may need to include some part of the 'distributable' 1.1
Framework on a CD we supply with a product because a LAN port on that product
requires it for installation of its own software. Once the product is in
production and all this sorted out, I'll probably uninstall 1.1 from my
computer here, as I won't need the utility once the manual is written.

Many thanks for your help; many of us who only marginally know what we are
doing depend very much on this forum and those of you who are familiar with
different Microsoft products. We appreciate your knowledge and direction.
