I agree with keszler
that previous attempts have your Perl installation a bit confused.
In the future, I recommend using the graphical version of ppm (Active State's Perl package manager). typing simplly "ppm" at the command prompt without parameters will start the GUI version. "ppm help" gives help for the command line version, but for most simple things the GUI is easier to use.
If you have really messed things up, un-install Perl (via the normal add/remove program way) and re-install Active State's Perl, then use ppm for all future package installations. This will save many hours of frustration on your end!
