.Net Framework installation and Windows Explorer crashes RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey everyone. I'm currently using an Alienware 18 laptop that I recently purchased through Dell. It is a brand new laptop that was sent to me after my first one was a dud. After running into many issues with simple installation problems (3rd party programs) and 6 hours on the phone with Microsoft, I was forced to do a system repair with the OS disk. The problem is it didn't fix the Framework issue. When I download new drivers for my video cards it will even tell me that the installation failed for .Net framework.

    So I tried downloading the framework 4 from Microsoft and I receive a "Fatal Error during installation" error message. In addition, my Windows Explorer keeps crashing. It is causing widespread system instability while playing video games. I have ruled out hardware issues and drivers (for GPU) entirely. Here is the log file.... Maybe someone here can shed some light on a potential fix! Thanks for your time.
