Have you tried to just re-install it? –  soandos Dec 7 '11 at 20:47
    
I'm unable to uninstall, so I couldn't reinstall. –  Jonas Arcangel Dec 7 '11 at 21:18
    
Can you try a system restore to before it was installed? –  soandos Dec 7 '11 at 21:21
    
Unfortunately, no. I've had my VS 2010 Professional for quite some time now. It had a lot of add ons that I recently uninstalled. And then tried applying SP1 which failed. Since then, I've been trying to repair or uninstall my VS 2010. –  Jonas Arcangel Dec 7 '11 at 21:35
    
Have you tried using something like CCleaner? –  JKM Dec 7 '11 at 23:24

Have you tried the VS 2010 uninstall utility?

Yes I have tried that too. It says it has successfully uninstalled, but when I run the VS 2010 installer, it says it's still "there". –  Jonas Arcangel Dec 8 '11 at 4:15
    
I have done that and then deleted the VS 2010 folder, cleared registries using a tool, and it still thinks there is VS 2010 installed. Why is that? –  Jonas Arcangel Dec 8 '11 at 20:55
    
The files that it's complaining about in your temp directory (C:\Users\Jason\AppData\Local\Temp)... do they exist even when you're not running setup? If they exist, maybe delete them? –  Patrick S. Dec 8 '11 at 22:26
    
I raised the same question at Microsoft support and was advised to simply reinstall Windows. I was due for a harddisk upgrade anyway so I did. Thanks for all the replies. –  Jonas Arcangel Dec 12 '11 at 0:02
