You can use the snipping tool or you can download Faststone capture which is a great program and easy to use, to post your images use the advanced tab on your post and then use the paper clip to manage attachments.

another thing you might want to try is Windows Live Beta package. wlsetup-web.zip

At the bottom of the error message it suggest that another program could preventing this installer from working, are there any programs that are out of the ordinary that you have installed lately, maybe you could try uninstalling a couple to see if that works.

What programs do you have open when you try and install it? The error message is saying that something's blocking it. Try closing everything except the installer and see if it works.

I know this installer works, because I used it yesterday and it worked perfectly. I only installed Messenger though.

EDIT: Grim beat me. =]
