Strange characters in CS6 installer

I've just downloaded the complimentary CS6 upgrade for my CS5.5 purchased a few weeks ago. However, the installer instructions shows up in weird characters, as shown in the attached screen shot. I use windows 7 professional:

I am unable to proceed, as I worry I might click the wrong buttons/settings without knowing what they actually meant. Anyone has any idea how I can fix this problem? Must I install using the installer (exe file). I notice that there is a "setup" file in the 7z install package, can I use that instead?

    What is your "default language for non-Unicode"  in your system settings? This kind of jibberish appears when the installer can't determine the system language properly and uses wrong characters. Check that and to be on teh safe side, set the same language as the installer package comes in.

    Oh, and yes, if you extract the 7z manually, simply run the setup.exe. It may suffer the same garbage text problem, though, so yo ustill need to fix that...
