Error Code 1603

I have had this problem with 2 installations of W7. Both times it happened with my Mouse. First the mouse stopped working like I had it adjusted. It would act like a plain ole mouse. My Mouse is a Wireless Laser Mouse 6000. I get told that there is something wrong with my Mouse Software and it needs to be uninstalled and then reinstalled. When I go to install the Mouse Software it gets part way completed and I get this message. Nothing I do allows me to install. I have done the System Restore and still cannot do it. HELP, cause I don't want to reinstall W7 again.
