Cant install Photoshop CS3

I have been trying to install Photoshop CS3 but all it does is displays the loading setup window of adobe then crashes and comes up with the option to send an error report!

Anyone had this or know what I can do about it?
It also now has claimed that it is in the add/remove programs but once again trying to change/uninstall it opens the setup window and crashes.

Must be damaged CD/DVD which is causing this error..

It is not a damaged DVD as I am running the EXE that you can download from the adobe.com website.

The file is not corrupt either as it has installed on several other machines.

The only thing I can think of at the moment is if there is a problem with some software that the installer might be using within your system.

Try Upgrading/Re-installing
