Set up controller has encountered a problem during install

I uninstalled MS 2010 today..... completed a system restore and was able to get it back. Now I am getting several error messages including "set up controller has encountered a problem during install. Please review the log files for further information on the error."  After clicking "ok" I get the next error message, "Microsoft Office Home and Business 2010 cannot verify the license for this application. A repair attempt failed....." 

I attempted to uninstall MS 2010 again in order to reinstall it correctly, however..... it won't let me uninstall it. So now I'm stuck. Help!
