Windows 7: .NET 4.0 Install Failure

.NET 4.0 Install Failure

I was on my way to install Freemake video conversion tool and it requires .NET 4.0, which isn't on my Win7 Ultimate x64 mule, so it fetched the installer and I ran it. It failed to install throwing a fairly generic code "file not found".
I have been doing some searches and the problem/s with such are plenteous.

I'm hoping someone here that has "been there, done that" can tell me a sure and non-destructive way to resolve? the various methods i've seen have spotty success, and too often end with "why don't you nuke the drive and reinstall 7".
i ain't going there...

Confirm what version (if any) of .net you currently have

dot net 4 problem

Have a look at the .NET Framework cleanup tool and the .NET Framework setup verification tool
