"Fatal Error" When trying to download Skype

I checked my event viewer and this is the message I get: "Detection of product '{EE7257A2-39A2-4D2F-9DAC-F9F25B8AE1D8}', feature 'Phone' failed during request for component '{57FF4446-590E-4894-AE39-D55928DBDE01}'"

 

I've cleaned the temp folder, tried different site downloads, tried running in safe mode, everything I could find suggested in this forum. Nothing is working for me.

 

I have Windows 7, laptop. It works on my desktop just fine, not sure what I'm doing wrong for it not to work here as well.
