Steam Download cannot install?

When I try to download + install Steam, a message comes up when I run the program that says,

"The installation package cannot be opened.Verify that the package exists and that you can access it"

We definately downloaded the correct version, Operating system Windows Vista, already tried uninstalling/reinstalling. Any help appreciated.

    Exit Steam.

    Navigate to your Steam directory. (Typically C:\Program Files\Steam or C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam

    If you wish to save your game files for a future installation of Steam, copy your steamapps folder outside of your Steam directory.

    Delete all of the contents of your Steam directory.

    Go to Start > Run and type in regedit.

    In the left-hand column of your registry editor, navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Valve\.

    Right-click on the Steam subdirectory and select Delete.

    In the left-hand column of your registry editor, navigate to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Valve\Steam.

    Right-click on the Steam subdirectory and select Delete.

    Close your Registry Editor.
