Major problem installing SolidWorks Student

I'm having two problems at the same time right now.  The first is my fault and I can't seem to fix it.  When I first installed the program it ran fine but I noticed some files in my documents folder and deleted them, mistaking them for temporary files when they were not.  This caused issues with starting the program so I uninstalled it and tried reinstalling it but ever since I deleted those files everything has been messed up.


I've tried reinstalling about 10 times but the installer continually assumes I already have the program installed, even after a clean wipe of everything solidworks from both my hard drive and my registry.  This causes it to run through the installation without actually installing any software.  Any help with this would br greatly appreciated, I can provide support logs if necessary.


The other issue is an issue facing many people in my class at my college.  The link provided by my instructor to download the setup files for the program leads to a page that cannot be found.  Again, any help would be awesome, please and thank you.
