    If you want to force an install go to control panel>add or remove programs>add new programs click the button that says CD or floppy. This will cause windows to search the CD/DVD for the setup.exe file and launch it.

    Try CCleaner.

    Click on the Issues button on the navigation pane and then analyze. When you clean it out don't forget to back up the registry when it asks you to..

    If that doesn't fix it, then go to the Tools sections and go from there. Should be self explanatory.

    Thanks for letting us know that you've got it fixed :)

    For future reference, CCleaner is a small utility that can be found here: http://www.ccleaner.com/update/?v=1.30.310&l=1033

    and the issues button i was talking about is on this screenshot: http://i61.photobucket.com/albums/h47/N3051M/ccleaner_issues.jpg
    and the tools section (which is pretty handy) here: http://i61.photobucket.com/albums/h47/N3051M/ccleaner_tools.jpg

    Even if you fixed your problem, keep this program in mind, its very useful and can get you out of some sticky situations..
