Can't install or uninstall AMD Overdrive

I recently ran the AMD cleaner utility to remove my GPU drivers so I could install them again from scratch. All seemed to be fine, until I tried to open AMD Overdrive today and it wouldn't open, presumably because the cleaner utility removed it, too, from my system.

 

No worries, I thought, I'll just install it again. So I downloaded Overdrive, ran the installer, and it won't install because it says a newer version of the software is already installed.

 

No worries, I thought, I'll just uninstall what's currently here and run the installer again. So I went into add or remove programs and tried to uninstall, which won't uninstall and gives the error that there is something wrong with this Windows installer package.

 

So I can't uninstall it, and I can't reinstall it!

 

I don't think running the AMD cleaner utility is going to do anything, because I already ran it and it didn't remove it completely, apparently.

 

I would really like to have Overdrive back, so I'd love to see if anyone has any insight to provide! Thank you
