Error 0X0000005 is "access denied" which implies somehow the ownership got messed up. Probably the Program Files folder. With all the installs things may be confused. Try right clicking on Program Files folder and clicking Take Ownership. If the selection is not there see this:

Take Ownership Shortcut

Naturally before doing anything make a restore point and/or back up Registry (google ERUNT) and/or do an image backup of your system if you have an external drive to store the image.

Can you run any programs from a flash drive? If so get someone to download and unzip the files onto a flash drive for you.

Sounds like it's either that or a clean wipe.
