************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just in time (JIT) debugging, the config file for this
application or machine (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging

For example:

<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the machine
rather than being handled by this dialog.

can anyone help? im not sure what to do.

I had a miliar JIT netfraimwork error caused when installing Hp printer software HP have since installed a fix to thier softwarer.
MSFT has instlled a netframework hotxfix that is blocking the install that may be a virus. Use task manager to end process and clear temporary internet
