Mcafee internet security 2012 Will not instaLL.

I got this error: "McAfee Integrated Security Platform Installer has encountered a problem and needs to close"

Specifically when i click on details its: install.exe. This error occurs imediately when trying to install. I ran the Mcafee Virtual technition. I ran the MCafee removale tool. I'm up to date on windows updates(critical and non critical) I have msxml installed with the latest version. I dont have any other anti-virus on the machine. My system is clean according to Stinger(file that comes with mcafee on the disk).

What is going on!? Why won't the dang thing install!?
