Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

           I am needing help resolving a message which is seen each time the Windows 8.1 desktop is loaded.  The message which needs resolution reads as follows:  Required System Software Not Installed.... Microsoft.NET Framework Version 2.0 is required to continue.  The software is available for free download at   

           At this point, I have not attempted any kind of troubleshooting.  Any advisement and guidance given to the best approach to downloading, installing, and configuring Microsoft.NET Framework Version 2.0 will be greatly appreciated.

          Thank you.
