Wow! I don't think I'd find my CS3 installers if you offered me money
I suspect it's the welcome screen that is going nowehere.
Try getting past it by creating a new document with the keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+N)

That looks like the registration screen.
You can get rid of it by:
1. turn off your internet connection
2. start photoshop cs3 as an administrator
Right click on the photoshop cs3 shortcut and click on Run As Administrator
3. You should now get the whole registration screen.
Click on Never Register
You only need to run cs3 as an administrator once to make the Never Register stick and then start cs3 as normal
Thanks a lot Jeff that worked a treat. Up and running!
