Which version of the software did you download?
Are you on XP?

Sounds to me like your attempted uninstall of 7.1 didn't remove everything.
Try scanning your C: drive for any remnants to Squeezecenter... in C:\program files\squeezecenter
and C:\documents and settings\(sub folders)
and delete every SC related thing.
Then reboot.
Then download 7.01 (not the nightly but the "stable" version) and install that..

Have you tried to open SqueezeCenter from a browser window (rather than the tray icon)?
From IE or Firefox (or whatever browser) try:
http://localhost:9000
(This assumes squeezecenter is running on the same PC as the browser).

Are you sure the program is actually starting (and not just the system tray application)? It's been a while since I setup my SqueezeCenter, but I know I set it up to run as a service, which means it should have started when the computer boots up...
Here's info from the Windows Installation Guide on the wiki:
While you are given the option to run Slimserver service automatically when you install on Wiindows, you may want to install and run the SlimServer Windows service by hand.

Follow these instructions:

Open a "cmd" window and type "cd C:\Program Files\SlimServer\server". Type "slim.exe -install auto" to install the SlimServer software so it will automatically start as a Windows Service the next time you reboot.

You can start or stop the service manually by using "net start slimp3svc" or "net stop slimp3svc" respectively, or by using the Control Panels->Administrative Tools->Services application.

You can uninstall the service by stopping it, then typing "slim.exe -remove"

Remember that you will then need to add three exceptions in your firewall:

In Windows open Firewall and click 'Add Port...':

Port number: 3483 (TCP) - Name: SlimServer Control
Port number: 3483 (UDP) - Name: SlimDiscovery
Port Number: 9000 (TCP) - Name: SlimServer Web
And Port 9090 for the CLI (Command Line Interface)
