Visit Microsoft Update to see if service pack 1 for .net framework is offered, if so, install it, then return for the hotfix

Or alternatively, go to Start -> Run, type in "control userpasswords2" (no quotes) and untick "Users must enter a username and password...". Click OK and on the next screen, type in the username of the account and password, then there you go.

By the way, I strongly recommend NOT using the "Administrator" account, because if that user account gets corrupt or damaged or whatever, you will have no way to get into the system afterwards.
