This is a registry problem. But UT3/UDK is running well portable ... meaning, you don't need to install a version. The InstallShield routine is just browsing for a installed application specified in its Setup.ini. AFAIK, UT3 isn't acessing the registy at all. There something wrong with your system.
Virus, Malware, CC cleaner, Tweak software, ...
A lite fix:
Copy this content
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
"InstallLocation"="C:\\Program Files\\Unreal Tournament 3\\"
Change the path and save it to a file "temp.reg"
Doubleclick and import this file into registry (or open "regedit.exe" and import that file)
Done (check the Launcher)
The value "BFA90209-7AFF-4DB6-8E4B-E57305751AD7" can be different on a another OS or localized UT3. Therefore you need to change that to ... ehm something. Report if it's not working.
The full fix would be to add every other value so you can uninstall UT3. But this would take too much time. Just (backup the profile folder, ) install UT3 and unistall.
PS: UT3 works fine without a disc. You don't need a new one for this problem.
