Jane, please turn off the autoquote in you email when replying.
I've installed it on two CS3 win 7 machines with wide-screens without incident. Are you running the installer from disk or a download? The CS3 installers was pretty finicky, as I recall, and you may need to perform a "clean boot" to get it to work. See How to perform a clean boot to troubleshoot a problem in Windows 8, Windows 7, or Windows Vista
