How do I fix the following error I receive at the startup of my PC?  I can only start this on Safe Mode, otherwise I keep on getting the message, at startup, to either run a repair, which I have numerous times, or start windows normally, which keeps on rebooting itself.  Here is the message:

Please set registry key
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\.NETFramework\InstallRoot to point to the .NET Framework install location.

You just need to install the .NET Framework, you have something installed that relies on it.

Install guide here: .NET Install

Another aproach is to boot into safe made and create and set the registry key
http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-HK/netfxsetup/thread/3a0dcbd7-d2ac-489a-a2c2-aa7d7aa715d8

1.Open regedit,
2.Goto HKLM\Software\Microsoft\.NETFramework\
3.Right-click on the panel and in the menu select New->String Value
4.Change its name to "InstallRoot",
5.And value to "C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework"

On my machine for step 5.
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\

I am guessing you are running quickbooks???  It is an Intuit error message.  You could try disabling any quickbooks (or other Intuit product) services that are set to run at startup while yo uare in safe mode.  Then you may be able to boot normally...

Either way you will need to reinstall the .NET Framework again, and possibly the Intuit product(s) you are using.

You hardly gave people chance. It is hardly in the spirit of the community.

Please post the log file from the failed install.
