Did you try running system file checker in the cmd prompt? Go to the command prompt and type:
SFC /scannow

The error you recieved is due to the MSIEXEC service not running on your system. Go into services and restart the service Windows installer. This should fix the MSI problem.
Now when you say .Net framework, are you talking about a work type installation or are you setup like that at home?
