Windows 7: Installing Application Help

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Installing Application Help

I was using a program for a while and it stopped working. I ran several of the correct installation files and all of them showed an error message saying the installer file was corrupt.

Now, when I try to install, most of the files are extracted to my desktop even though the installer is pointed to the correct directory, "C://Program Files(x86)/"

I've tried running the installer file as administrator and safe start up as well.

Why would half the files install to the desktop and half in the location?
