Hi guys.. I work for an I.T. group. our group has found KB2918614 corrupts MS installer and creates this issue.
Uninstalling KB2918614 and rebooting fixes this. Just to help out and prevent you guys from having to reinstall the OS.

I just wanted to thank zerialz for the tip and confirm this worked for my "object already exists" issues trying to install adobe products, ventrillo, and some other programs.

Uninstalling the windows update KB2918614 and rebooting worked yay lol. I really didn't want to reinstall my OS.

I have been having the same problems, not being able to install software apps. I am SO HAPPY to have found this string of conversations. The last suggestion of uninstalling the windows update KB2918614 and rebooting worked wonderfully. I am now able to install the two programs I was desperately trying to get on my computer. BTW, CCleaner was not working for me either.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

CCleaner is not intended for these purposes at all.

If registry is holding onto keys blocking program reinstall then a manual search for them can sometimes remedy that scenario. http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/17...find-next.html. Be sure to set a System Restore point first.

In this case it appears to be a Windows Update byprofuct, which are one in a million.
