A couple months ago I got a new computer with XP Pro installed on it. Every time I turned on the computer, it simply loads up right to the desktop. A week ago, I installed Visual Studio .NET on it and now it always boots up partially to a screen that wants me to select the user I am logging in as. I can easily just pick my name from the list since I am the only person I have set up to use the computer and then continue booting to the desktop, but I want to know why this bootup sequence has been over-ridden by simply installing .NET. Nothing else was installed on the computer in between the periods where the boot sequence changed. Anybody have any ideas? Can I safely change some settings to get it back the way it was?
I also had previously installed the MSVC++ 6.0 compiler on the machine as well. In this, I can type a name of any class/template variable that I have instantiated and once I press the '.' key to start typing a member function name, a little window pops up with all the different member variables/function within that class that I can choose from. I think this is called autocomplete (?). I like this feature and it seems to be enabled by default when you install MSVC++ 6.0. I would like to know if this is available under .NET and how I would go about enabling it since I have not been able to figure out how to turn it on. This feature seems to be disabled/unavailable under .NET.
