cannot uninstall or reinstall visual studio 2013


I wanted to install vS 2015 but got an error so I then tried to uninstall visual studio 2013 first prior to installing VS 2015.

And now I see I cannot even reinstall (or uninstall) VS 2013.

When I try to uninstall VS 2013 I get this error

"an error occurred while trying to uninstall microsoft visual studio ultimate 2013. It may have already been uninstalled. Would you like to remove microsoft visual studio ultimate 2013 ultimate from the programs and features list".

I said no 'cos I want to uninstall it properly And then that dialog box cancels but it isn't uninstalled

enter image description here

I can go into visual studio. So it is installed.

I then tried to reinstall since that may fix the uninstaller.

Then I get this error

enter image description here

"setup failed. Install cannot continue because some required components failed. Please correct the following problems and restart the setup..."
