    Interesting thing today or rather last night.

    I was installed CS3 on the lap top, as I had bought by down load I store it in a folder where the beta copy was, and inadvertently installed the beta
    Uninstalled and had the problem you report when installing again.
    As I have made the machine duel system I shut down to reboot in XP to do something else. The system unasked did a disk check before booting, clearing what seemed like hundreds of files.

    I had a thought returned to Vista and installed CS3 without problem.

    So Ian do a disk check and see what happens it might work for you.

    Hmmmm... I did a fair bit of hacking the OS without success and decided that the only option, in the absence of any help from Adobe, was to do a clean install of Vista.

    This has, inbetween doing other things this weekend, taken me 24 hours. And interestingly - relating to your other post - I have hit a problem with some of my data restoration...

    I am using Acronis True Image 10 and my 4GB Outlook archive PST file won't copy back. I can rebuild this from other backups, but it is annoying.

    But at least CS3 now works

    It seems that the previous CS3 installation is not fully uninstalled and this prevents the new installation - even, in some case from starting.

    Has anyone here experienced this problem?

    I promptly installed Lightroom using the so-called corrupt account without any problems at all.

    So I've bounced this back to them - I'll keep you posted.

    It's all gone quiet at Adobe

    I cant wait for Adobe to deliberate, so reluctantly, I'm doing a clean reinstall of Vista on my laptop.

    So be warned, if you have previously run a beta of Photoshop CS3, installing the real thing just might give you a headache.

    I've now uninstalled CS2, but if that doesn't help it looks like a long session on the phone to Adobe customer support tomorrow

    I didn't have any problem Ian, fortunately I had seen mention of the problem on the Adobe News site. If you are still having problems there is a removal script available from HERE together with a very comprehensive tech notice about installing CS3.

    Hope that helps!
