Per your instructions below, I am fully up to date on ACT Pro 2011 releases.
This may be caused by some install files from the previous install conflicting with the current install. The easiest way to resolve to is to uninstall ACT! via your control panel, reboot your computer, then reinstall using the full updated version. The reinstall should not take long as you are only installing ACT! and not the SQL Server. Here is the link to download ACT! 2011 Pro with SP1 and HF1 already applied. To get fully updated, just apply Hot Fix 6 after reinstalling the full version:
ACT! 2011 Pro SP HF1 (full version)
[download link removed - please contact support or request through Community if install file is needed]
ACT! 2011 SP1 Hot Fix 6
For other users with the sames issues, please note that
> the ACT Pro 2011 SP1 HF1 is not the Update but the full SP1.
> it does required you to unistall your original DVD version (unlike other company's Services Packs).
Thanks again Greg.

Note: Effective 6/1/13, Sage no longers provides support for the Act! software. This is now provided by Swiftpage.
