Printed this out a while back when I had a similar problem. Hope this helps.

Launch Task Manager. If there are TWO instances of msiexec.exe running, end one of them.
That is the quickest way to see if the install will complete.

If that doesn't work, Download, install, and run this Microsoft utility to clear up the installation in progress
