Do you have an XP CD?

If so, put it in the drive and from RUN type in SFC /scannow
Do not forget the space between / and scannow.

This will check your operating system, and replace any files that are in error.

There are various uninstall programs ( this is an example) click here , that will remove cccleaner (enabling a clean install)if you want, howver I have not tried this program, and cannot say if it is any good or not.

ccleaner is an excellent piece of software. Most people seem to use it regularly

After uninstalling any of CCleaner that is mentioned in Control Panel > Add & Remove Programs.

That you also clear the IE Properties > Browsing Properties > Internet Temporary Files, actually a complete clear there would be better (remember that you will need to re-enter all your Internet Passwords) and, while you're at it "Do a Defrag, just to tidy things up.

Then go back to CCleaner and try an Install.
