    Default Help with install location, crazy installation paths

    I've been having a problem with my new computer in that, for some programs, it makes a crazy file path of seemingly infinite Program Files (x86) folders and sporadically places different data from the folders it creates. I'm no computer whiz, but based on websites I've been to, my registry editor looks normal. I have no idea how to make these programs usable. Mostly it's affected programs that don't ask me where I want to download them (ie. Nvidia PhysX), but I've also had it happen with a game that did ask me where I wanted to download it (Blade & Soul).

    Can anyone please help me? I'd post screenshots but it won't let me post links. I put them up on imgur at I don't know if they even help or not. Most programs I install work fine, but a rare few of them are causing me a big pain in the butt and I don't know how to fix it.
