ISSET_SE general protection fault

I am trying to reinstall a piece of old (Win98 I believe) software which was previously running very happily on a Windows 7 machine. Trying to reinstall however produces the following message.

ISSET_SE caused a General Protection Fault in module <unknown>16F7:0223[3/4] ISSET_SE will close.

Running the installer again produces a different error message stating that NTVDM.EXE has stopped working.

These two error messages then alternate each time the installer is run (unless I kill the NTVDM process manually).

Prior to the reinstallation I just uninstalled the software in the normal way. Since then I have also cleaned the registry of all mention of it, as well as removing some physical files left over.

I am aware of the article here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q192890/
Unfortunately I am not running any of the software mentioned (I have unistalled my virus scanner as well).

I am attempting to install from the local admin account - I have also attempted to run the installer in various compatibiltity modes etc.
