Windows Installer Problem

Ok... first thing I must say is that

Windows 7 although pre-beta works flawlessly and has really proven to be 100x times better than Vista. I even installed 7 on my old laptop that was running Ubuntu 8 because XP gave performance issues, and it really worked well. ()

I have only one issue and it's the following...

I installed some driver utilities for my HP printer and at the end of the installation I got an error.

Now everytime I install something the HP utility setup resumes and the same error repetidely pops up!!!

I attched the hp setup error that constantly pops up!!!

Thanks to anybody that can help!!!!!
