I think that system restore only rewinds the registry and some system
locations. The rest of the files on disk are not touched, I suppose,
and have to be removed manually.

Looks like you don't have write access rights to C:/Program Files.
You're on Vista, right? When you are in TL installer gui, do you see
any messages in red? There should be nothing in red!!!

Let's try this. Create a directory, say, C:\TeXLive and choose it in
installer for TEXDIR (the main TeX directory). I hope that this will
do it. Again, there should be no messages in red in the installer gui.
