Installing quickbooks 2010 error 1402

I'm trying to install Quickbooks Pro 2010 on my windows xp sp3. When trying to install about 1/4 of the way through I get this error:
Error 1402: Could not open key

I tried the solutions listed here and nothing worked. http://support.quickbooks.intuit.com/support/pages/knowledgebasearticle/132c7f33. I really don't want to have to reinstall windows, can anyone help me out?
