I would advise making a portable version somewhere and running that first just to see if the system can be run successfully in any case.

You said that it was uninstalled. That doesn't mean all files were removed. The next question, which has been discussed here before but which I didn't try to remember the answer to, is what files are left when uninstalling. It appears from the cannot overwrite a file message, that at least one file is in use. I don't know why but such questions may help you solve the proboem. Perhaps something wasn't fully uninstalled that should have been and Windows is keeping a file in use, perhaps because a registry entry is still present that tells it to. In short, I suspect that completely removing the program may require dealing with such questions or, perhaps, going into safe mode and removing the extra files.

I see no indication in the list of apps and programs on the computer that
NVDAis present. If it were running on the log in screen how would I remove

Are you sure you don't have a copy of NVDA that is running on the logon

I have a new windows 10 laptop computer. I am trying to install the
2018.1 program. When I run the install application I get the message
that NVDA was unable to overwrite, or remove a file. Another copy of
NVDA may be running. I have no copy running. I did have someone else
try to help me install NVDA before and they couldn't make it work so
they uninstalled the previous copy they tried to install.

I am currently running JAWS 2018. What do I need to do to get the
installer to complete the installation of NVDA 2018.1 on my laptop?
