My Windows 7 just got blow away

I install a Logitech Web Cam 9000 which is about 2 years old and it blew away my windows 7. I tried to uninstall it with no luck. It keeps telling me it can't read memory at whatever address, then says to click OK to uninstall the program but after 50 times I just said "That won't work" and it just keeps trying to uninstall or whetever with the little circle at the end of the mouse pointer. I tried to uninstall the program in safe mode but I couldn't find out how. I'm not sure what to do. I would like to fix this just for educational reasons but if not I'll just re-install the OS. Thank god I have removable hard drives and I'm posting from my Vista OS. Can you help me?

If you can, try performing a system restore, or, bite the bullet and reinstall. No point in delaying the inevitable!

Go to restorepoints and restore to most recent restore point.

If that doesn't work post back

I'm not sure how to do a restore form a restore point because I have always just restored from a backup.

System Restore does not work so can you somehow delete a program using safe mode?

Working

After 15 re-boots and deleting in the program files and a few other places it works. I'm glad this happened because now I know my 3rd party backup don't work so I will use windows 7 backup. I will get restore points. This has been an educational experience.

Listen first thing first. Shut down reboot and hold F8 down. Reboot into safe mode once in safe mode go to control panel, system, system protection and than hit system restore.

Pick a point previous to your install go back a day or two if you have one, and do that.

Once done reboot and you should be fine. Just make sure you don't have any new hardware installed to do the restore.

Let us know..
