It appears related to kb2918614.

I uninstalled the KB, rebooted their machine, and tried the installer and it worked.

Looks like it is related to our issue, not the same error but the same cause ( kb2918614):

Re: Obect Already Exists Error all of a sudden

We are now seeing this error on a few systems too. Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Redistributable 2010 SP1 fails as well as another 3rd party installer.
Both are due to 'Object Already Exists'.

What in the heck did Microsoft do in that update?

Just as Lance stated, removing the KB2918614 and rebooting fixes the problem.

What is the KB2918614 and how does one go about removing it?

Re: Obect Already Exists Error all of a sudden

KB items are patches that Microsoft has released through their update system.

To remove one you simply go to Programs and Features and click on the link to the left to 'view installed updates'. Type in the KB2918614 item in the search box at the top and it should appear and allow you to uninstall. I do not know if any group policy settings will limit this ability, but it stands to reason that it might.

Un installing kb2918614

I was able to uninstall this update and it solved my problem, but with automatic updates turned on (which I don't want to have to turn off) windows keeps reinstalling it whenever I reboot, what can I do to isolate this update so I don't have to keep uninstalling it?

Do a check for updates. Isolate the offending one. You should be able to select it and choose to hide this update.
