Workstation 7 blue screen during install

Host machine is a clean install of Windows 7 pro x64. I was running the Workstation install exe from a network share got a blue screen right at the end. After host reboot my keyboard would not work so could not login. I used restore to last known good login and this go me in the host machine. Workstation 7 is not listed in the Add and Remove programs so I cannot uninstall I have tried all command line options to uninstall but no luck (logged in as admin). Workstation 7 is installed and does seem to work but I would feel better if I could completely remove and try the install again. Any ideas?

Thanks,

I have run both the VM cleaner and the microsoft utility. The MS utility did remove files but I still cannot uninstall the VM. I have run the clean utilities several times and tried to re-install several times but always get the blue screen. And then after reboot the USB keyboard driver is gone?. If I run /uninst switch I get the wizard and select remove but then get the MSI failed message. If I try to start the workstation I cannot get the serial number to load and then if I try to stop the workstation it tells me I cannot exit while still downloading. I am going to attach the last install log files. Let me know what other information might be required.
