SQL Installation Error...............Is this normal to have this many problems installing SQL Server 2008

I have yet another error after having uninstalling rebooting, Cleaning registry and cleaning file folders on a Windows 2008 Server Standard.

I have not been able to get another install after everything seemed to be going well I got the following error. I just do not get this. I have Administrator privileges.

I also do have problems downloading things periodically, Installing things and moving things on the server from FTP for example. The second image shows what I see when I connect via FTP in Windows Explorer and try to simply drag and drop from the FTP site to the desktop of the Server. The Windows2008 Server throws the following error.

I have seen websites that state that this file "icyqpif8.dll" is a file that can be fixed with a host of tools that seem to want to send you to a site to pay for the solution. Has anyone seen any of these problems listed above and below. The text of the error is below. The link they give. For Help.....actually does not work.

I am not logged in as "The Administrator". I am an in the Administrator Group with Full Control rights? I should be able to

It is a Domain Controller... I know it is not recommended. How can I work around that if the server has to be a DC. Right now with budgets I just do not have a choice. How could this be so darn hard to do. Should I try to go back and start with SQL Server 2005 which has an immediate problem with Windows Server 2008 Standard. Then try to update those to SP2 & SP3

are you setting SQL server only or the whole server?
I would recommend a full wipe out and install win server 2008, then sql server, then dc promo as a domain controler.

can you do that? or can't wipe the domain controler and there's already a working environment?

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

There is already a working environment. My appologies for the ignorance but i do not quite know what you mean with the..."are you setting SQL server only or the whole server?"

The machine has run really well with no problems other than the SQL Server 2005 and 2008. We have had no trouble with the box at all until this. I have used registry cleaners and some tools like
http://www.revouninstaller.com/ 
Which seems to have clean most everything off well...? I guess I could be wrong.

I finally got this installed. Using the Administrator. I do no understand why and others did not as well. It was strange I can tell you but never the less. I got SQL 2008 Server installed. less about 2 more square inches of hair.

I still do not know what you meant by this statement....
"are you setting SQL server only or the whole server?
" Do you want to explain.

I meant were you just installing SQL server, or installing the OS then SQL and configuring everything from scratch.
