Difficult to know with Windows, but if I were you I'd find the directory 
in which texlive was installed (C:\texlive or something like that, 
maybe?) and rename it to something else so it can't be found.  Also I'd 
look for texlive in the path (Control Panel, System, Environment 
variables and look for PATH) and remove it from there too.  Then I'd 
install miktex and hope for the best: it will probably work.

If it works then later you can delete the old texlive directory, the one 
you renamed.
