Windows 7: Adobe Creative Suite 3 Design Standard will not install/uninstall

Adobe Creative Suite 3 Design Standard will not install/uninstall

I am experiencing difficulties when trying to uninstall/reinstall my adobe product. At the beginning of the month, I had some issues with the activation which caused the program to lock me out. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the program thinking that may help it, but alas nothing changed. Had to call adobe to deactivate my serial.

Long story short, the adobe help center rectified the problem with my serial. Supposedly anyway. I have no way to test it because my current installation of photoshop is corrupt due to this licensing mishap. The only way is to start fresh and install the program again.

This is where the hitch is. As I previously mentioned, I was able to reinstall the program once without issue. Now, I can't even run the installer from the DVD. A window stating "Setup is initializing" appears, then quickly disappears. Nothing happens afterwards. Also, I am unable to remove the program from windows. The entry is there in "Programs and Features," however selecting the option to uninstall it does absolutely nothing. No window appears or anything.

The problem seems to only be with the adobe installer. I can remove my other applications and install new ones just fine. It's just for some reason Windows refuses to run the Adobe setup now. It doesn't make sense. The disc is not scratched at all and has never been stored outside its case. I'm at a complete loss what to do next. I can't remove it and I can't reinstall it.

I am running Windows 7 64 bit. The rest of my PC specs can be found in my profile. CS3 has worked perfectly on the OS for over a year now. All these problems only appeared this month out of nowhere. If I left out any info, I'm more than willing to give me details. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yes. I should have mentioned that before. The cleaner did not detect any installations on my computer and nothing was changed.

I've also tried Revo, but it utilizes the windows installer so it failed too.

I hate bumping, but at this point, any input would be helpful. Even if it's risky. This is the problem I'm encountering:

Adobe Setup initializes and disappears | CS3, Photoshop CS3

And yes, I performed all the suggestions and nothing has helped.
