From the look of that

either it did not successfully uninstall or on the intall it doesn't think you have selected anything to install.

Are the services still there ?
Are you leaving the defaults on the install ?

Note you can install sqlserver express more than once.
Each one is called an instance (it doesn't put the entire program on each time).

The default instance for express is MyMachineName/SQLExpress.

I saw one machine where someone was struggling a bit and had eight instances of it.
