Dell Webcam Central

Okay, so I got a message on my computer about installing the new version of my dell webcam central, so I installed it, but then afterwards the application stopped working, so I restarted my computer, and then it wouldn't even open at all. I then get a message saying that it probably installed wrong or incompletely, so I go to install it again, accept I then get an error message that says I can't install it again because the application is already in the system. I then go to uninstall it so I can reinstall it, and when I try to reinstall the same error message pops up, so then I go to my Dell Downloads and try to reinstall it yet again, and the file is here, but every time I try to use it, it just keeps reinstalling itself over and over again, and when it's finished it tells me to restart my computer so the application will work, and I do restart it but then it's just the same folder that tells me to install it. It looks like this: 

So basically I have the folder for Dell Webcam central but I don't actually have the application. What in the world is going on here?

Re: Dell Webcam Central

It hasn't worked. I successfully uninstalled dell webcam central and I reinstalled it and dell webcam software but dell webcam central is not on my computer. I looked for it on my control panel and programs and features but it's not there. All I have is this file

And in setup is where dell webcam central is

I install it, it tells my computer to restart, and I do, and when it turns on nothing has changed.
