[Not solved ] UNetbootin fails to work after install to HDD?

I want to use UNetbootin but every time I start it up it says

something in Swedish that is roughly translated to:
UNetbootin are already installed. Do you want to uninstall this installed version?
Which does make no sense. I want to use it and not uninstall it.

I tested to do what they say but that took away the Grub that allowed me to use Linux on the machine.

I used unetbootin to install Puppy 4.3 on my Compaq SR5622SC Vista Desktop to learn more about what unetbootin does

EDIT. Seems to be impossible to make use of UNetbootin if one have done an install and that makes no sense.

So I must be some error. But if it is UNetbootin or Vista acting strangely I don't know.

I tried to rename the program to see if help but it did not.

It is not solved.

I will have to use another computer for doing UNetbootin until somebody tell me how to solve this.

Could someone please help!

So it worked? You should tag the thread as SOLVED. Posting here to take it off the zero reply list.
