Download and use Ccleaner to clean out all remnants of prior install, then try to install
If it still does not work, try in safe mode.

It could be a virus scanner issue. Try TEMPORARILY uninstalling your virus scanner. Try installing Windows Essential. Does it work?

Boot, and rapidly hit the f8 key; unitil you get to boot screen

Sounds like you have bigger problems than just MSE. You are getting contiuous error problems. That should be fixed before anything else.
