Default Problems installing games..

Hey guys, I tried running system mechanic pro 6 a couple times hoping it would fix this bizarre problem.

When I try to install games, I get weird errors, like the installer is corrupt or something. The install fails every time. Also, my paintshoppro icon on my start bar used to open the program, it all of a sudden changed to.. when i click it, it tries to install it...

Should I just reinstall windows or.. is there something I can do to fix this problem.

One game starts installing, but then I get a "constant em" or something error.. never happened before. Another game immediatly says "autorun error" and wants me to send a bug report to windows.

A setup.exe files returns immediate error "An installation support file could not be installed - Catastrophic error"

-- edit: I'm currently trying to reinstall installshield.

Great, says the program I'm trying to update is missing or the wrong version. (the installshield setup file tells me this)
