Windows 7: Error installing VirtualBox

Checked all possible forums, posted on VBox forums. Issue remains. Tried everything, run installer as admin. Nothing works. I simply can not install VirtualBox.

My restore points allow me to go back only to two days after this issue occurred, so no help there.

Please, geeks, I need ideas!

No s**t, I am going to do a factory reset. Have other issues, too, and I am already behind my normal schedule, restoring and re-installing every 6 months.

No patience anymore, resetting the rig always works for me
