I have been getting the same problem. I had to uninstalled the program and tried to reinstalled it and All but the shred componets and accrobat prof don't install, i check the logs and the only error number i get is 1603, the support says something about google desktop, so i unistalled everything google i had and it still doesn't work.
Hmm, same here. Had Google Desktop preinstalled when I got this Dell, but I removed it. Manually removed anything google Desktop from the registry, because the Adobe technote says 1603 is Google Desktop related:
CS3 takes a damn long time to install/reinstall on Windows, and the install logs don't mean much to me. Nothing in the Windows logs.
I did successfully install CS3 initially, but recently an error popped up on all but Fireworks which suggested I needed to reinstall to fix it. So I did, or rather tried. Uninstalled, I can't reinstall, except for Acrobat, which I can't use anyway as it requires I open one of the main apps to activate first.
I do have Illustrator and Photoshop CS2, which I kept as a precaution, and just as well. I fear trying to remove them and not being able to reinstall them. That's the main point of this machine. This is a Vista machine, and I initially had trouble installing Illustrator CS2, until I learnt to right-click and use Run as Administrator, or Activation would fail.
Underneath the 1603 errors and subsequent rollback, there's this:

The Adobe forum doesn't provide any info on this.
