Maybe the problem is caused by OS. You should download the version that can be installed on Vista. And Many application can't be installed on home editon.

Try downloading a new copy of Sql Express and before installing it, go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and remove "Microsoft Office Web Components". Hopefully this will do the trick.
If not, please let us know exactly error message (via eventvwr).

Try the following steps for Installing SQL Server Express 2008.
Make sure your Hard drive has NTFS file system.
You cannot install it on read only or compressed drives.
If you already have installed .NET Framework 3.5, SQL Server Native Client and
SQL Server Setup support files remove them. SQL Server Setup will install these components automatically.
Make sure your have installed Microsoft Windows Installer 4.5 or a later version.
Check the version of your internet explorer, it must be 6 SPI or later.
Hope this will help you.
