I have Writers Tools and it works with 3.4.5 on Ubuntu 64-bit 10.04LTS.
I wonder if it is something to do with having both 3.4.6 [beta?] and
3.5.1 installed at the same time. I run it as well with XP and Vista.
I wonder also if you could take the LO user data folder and rename it.
Then it should show that the items listed in the Extension Manager is no
longer there, or most of them. It does for Ubuntu when I rename the
".libreoffice" folder. Then install the Writers Tools extension again.
Where did you get the file? Was it downloaded properly/uncorrupted?
Here is my copies. I tend to install both "Tools" and "Extras" if I
install one of them.

Check if you have a "Quick Start" option installed/enabled for your
taskbar. Check your taskbar for a Quickstart icon for LO. "End" it
before you try the next install of LO. Be sure that you go through LO's
options to disable the Quichstart option from coming back.
If you do not see it on the taskbar, maybe look in the Install/Remove
option in Control Panel for that.
Which version of LO have you installed before on your computer?
I have not installed 3.5.x on my Vista [32-bit] laptop, but I have
installed 3.4.5[?] on it. I never enable the Quickstart option, since
it tends to give you issues when you want to upgrade the package. The
Quickstart option loads up at boot-time and runs in memory, EVEN when
you do not have the main LO package running. It gives LO a little boost
in its load time, but tends to not be worth the hassles. I never check
the Quickstart options for any Windows packages I tend to install.

Re: Uninstalling not fully installed WriterTools extension
It was either a corrupted .oxt file you tried to use or something in the
user file was giving you an issue. I have had things that downloaded 1%
of the file than ended as if it was completed properly. Mostly it was
due to overworked servers/mirrors. Use to get it many times with LO
language packs, till the mirror that I was directed to got their act
together and fixed their problems [so I was told].
I have one .oxt file in my list, I forget which one, that would not
install if I used the next version. I will be updating all my extension
files in that list for my next DVD publication, but every one listed
worked for me when I tried them out.
So that is why I gave you my link.
I know that it works, since it worked for my system.
