Windows Installer Problem, Message 1722 while trying to download Java latest

Noticed something. I have lost the ability to uninstall IE 6 from start>control>add remove programs. It is not there. CCleaner shows files being deleted from IE 5. But what is there is something called Microsoft Data Access Components KB870669 which is my Windows installer!?! Rushin 1nd, was helping me by finding a patch to correct the problem-that's how I know what this is. Not sure what to do here first.

And there's the problem of not being able to get into prefetch anywhere in mycomputer. I have done all the steps that I could-ex prefetch, and have created a Hijack log...
