No worry and it may have installed the key on its own.

Net framework is needed by different programs to work correctly. It should be part of the Microsoft Windows Update.

Please do the following in the exact steps. Failure to do so could make the boot.ini damaged and cause unstable or unusable results with your system.:

Save a Backup Copy of Boot.ini

1. Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl and then click OK.
2. Click on the Advanced tab, and then click Settings
3. In the Startup and Recovery area at the bottom click Settings.
4. Under System Startup click Edit. This opens the Boot.ini file in Notepad ready for editing.
5. In Notepad, click File on the Menu bar, and then click Save As.
6. First in here change the location in the top white drop down box to Desktop. Then in the file name change to Boot.old and save as Text Document(*.txt) and save it to your Desktop and then click Save



Please copy and paste all the lines from your Boot.ini file in your next reply.

Delete that last line completely. You have to do it in the boot.ini file and not the one you saved to your desktop. Make sure you save it when it done or the changes will not take affect.
Reboot and you should not have any choices at all as ti will auto boot to the only entry there.

I am going to stay with this until everything is updated and you are sure everything is working correctly. Have you done all the Microsoft Windows Updates?
How about installing a AV now?
