Okay, so my original Empire at War has been working fine for a while, but recently when I insert the disc the "EaW" symbol appears on my taskbar, then quickly dissapears and then nothing happens. I tried to uninstall it, but when I went to add/remove programs it simply said:

Error prompt An error (-5004 : 0x80041f42) has occured while running the setup Please make sure you have finished any previous setup and closed other applications. If the error still occurs, please contact your vendor: LucasArts

So until I get the problem fixed I have to play it on my laptop, which sucks because I can't use map editor or play online on it and the graphics aren't as good. Please help, this is one of my favorite games and it would suck to not be able to play it again.

No, not that I know of. I've only gotten one mod and that one's for FoC.

To uninstall the game, you need to go to the FOC folder in program files, and delete it.
