Run the Disk Cleanup utility (start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Cleanup) and remove everything. Then try to reinstall the games.

Is this just happening with games, or does this happen if you attempt to install any application? Are you installing from the original game disk? How much free space do you have on the hard drive?
