OT: Unable to uninstall a program

Hi everyone. I know we have a couple of computer-savvy people on these forums, so I thought I'd try to get help here.

A few weeks ago I decided I wanted to take a break from Diablo II and play The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion. The last time I played I encountered a rather nasty bug, and from what I have read I need to completely re-install the game along with the most recent patch. Now here is where the troubles begin. When I try to uninstall the game, I first get this pop-up:

>SetupDLL/SetupDLL.cpp. (390)
PAPP: Oblivion
PVendor: Bethesda Softworks (http://www.bethsoft.com)
PGUID: 35CB6715-41F8-4F99-8881-6FC75BF054B0
@Windows XP Service Pack 2 (2600) BT_OTHER 376.21
When I click the "Okay" button, I get this message:

Setup has experienced an error.
Please do the following:
-Close an running programs
-Empty your temporary folder
-Check your internet connection (Internet-based Setups)

Then try to run the Setup again.

Error code: -5001

I've closed all the running programs that aren't crucial, and emptied my temporary folder. But still, I get the same error when I try to uninstall the program.

Any ideas?

By the way, I'm running Windows XP Media Center Edition with Service Pack 2. I think the issue is unrelated to system specifications, but just in case;

CPU: Pentium(R) D 2.80 GHz
RAM: 2.0 GB

Have you tried uninstalled via Windows Remove Programs thing rather than Uninstall Oblivion on their menu?
