Check that the firewall either windows or other is not active and not allowing you to install drivers. Also if your computer is in user mode and does not have the right to install drivers login as administrator mode and install drivers through there.

Once deactivated firewall install new drivers should be OK then.

You need to reinstall the software. The bes way is to disconnect the printer, then use scrubber.exe (you can find it on the driver cd) to clean the system from old and failed installation, and after that install the printer according to user manual (software first).
