Fix for VMWare tools install failure with error 1722

Found fix on VMWare communities, most annoying when setting up a new machine that's a P2V transfer.

1. Open registry editor, locate HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\COM3, and then delete this key.
2. From the Start menu, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then click Add/Remove Programs.
3. Click Add/Remove Windows Components.
4. Proceed through the wizard, and accept all of the defaults. (COM is reconfigured)
5. Restart the computer.
6. Install Vmware Tools
