Hallo Leishalynn,

You might have specified another location for the .NET Framework when doing the installation other than the program files and therefore you will need to copy the .NET Framework folder in the location that has been pointed to above and then paste then in the program files which are the C: drive of your computer.

If that seems a little bit hard for you, just install .NET Framework by accessing the control panel and then removing it from add/remove programs window, and then install it again but then ensure that you choose the location for it to be installed as the program files in the C drive of your computer.

You most likely have a corrupted installation of the .NET Framework software. It's also possible that it is already outdated the software that needs it requires a newer version installed. Try to update your .NET Framework installation. You can get the update from Microsoft's website through here:
 
 
You can also check the registry key being referred to in the error using Regedit and verify if it is indeed pointing to the .NET Framework installation. If it isn't, try to edit it and entering the correct path to point to the installation. Try to look for a catroot2 folder as well and delete it. Then restart the computer.
