Hello @Aleksa and @Wild_Wehttam and Welcome to the forum :)

 

We need to know a bit more about:

 

1. Where are you downloading from ?  Is it Classic or Store-bought.

2.  Are all of your Windows updates up-to date?

3.  Which systems do you have Windows 10, or whatever?

4.  Do you have the latest .NET Framework?

I am downloading it from the Paint.Net website (https://www.getpaint.net/download.html)

I just scanned my system and my windows 10 is all up to date

And I clicked the link for the Frame work and it said it was already installed on this laptop.

I've had paint.net before but haven't used it in a while, and recently when I was trying to open it this error came up, I uninstalled and reinstalled and it's still there. But something did go wrong with my laptop's hardware between that time so, I might just need to get a new one.

That link was for an outdated version of .NET.  Try this one instead:

https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download/thank-you/net48

 

Do you already have that one installed?

Before you ditch the laptop run CHKDSK from Command Prompt as an Administrator

Next from the Command Prompt as an Administrator run sfc /scannow 
and if that does find and fix the errors, later from the Command Prompt as an Administrator run DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
