Error in Win Me install.exe

I have just reinstalled my Win Me after formatting my hard drive (again). When trying to install my HP 3300C scanner I installed the wrong Adobe Photo deluxe. An error message has now appeared "Windows has caused an error in INSTALL.EXE. Reinstall Windows."
I have a similar error message when trying to install ABBY fine reader.
It looks like I'll have to reinstall Win Me but:-
!. Can I do it without having to reformat my hard drive, will it overwrite the existing and correct the error?
2. Is there an alternative way to sort this file?
