Net Framework Initialization Error

I am having a persistant problem with a 'Framework Initialization error' saying that windows\\Framework\v2.0.50727\mscorwks.dll could not be loaded.  This occurs when i try and load a particular programme. I cannot reload the programme as i get a error message then. Can I get beyond this?
