Vista home
re logged in as admin
UAC turned off
Registry permissions set to allow

then whatever you try to install gets to about 95% then can't access registry file etc and uninstalls its self

Or run the installer as Administrator. I wouldn't recommend running with UAC off by default, it provides more protection than just popping up annoying dialogue boxes - Protected Mode in IE is disabled for a start. click here

'run the installer as Administrator' Been down that path -
Only ran with UAC off to rule out that possibility
