Tried, no luck. This is what I did:
1. Uninstall Qgis
2. Run regedit in the windows terminal
3. Searched for quantumgis in the registry editor
4. Deleted the quantumgis folder from the software folder in the registry
6. Installed QGIS
7. Run qgis and after displaying a vector file tried to set
Properties and... crashed.
I'm giving up, will not use the win version of qgis on this computer,
the ubuntu version works and I use ubuntu most of the time.
Thanks to all who tried to help!
