You may need to clean your system of all remaining traces of previous installations of CS3.
Go and see this:
If that fails go and read this:
Sorry, can I ask a question? Does the first item on the list mean that I really need to back up all my harddrives? That would be a ridiculous amount of work. I can't do that. Can I go on to the next step without backing everything up?
Read it again, slowly and carefully:
Back-up all data prior to using the CS3Clean Script. This includes fonts, Version Cue repositories, plugins and any other important files.
I used it without backing up anything without problems but it was a risk. Of course I regularly backup my data so the risk was reduced. But nothing was missing after the cleanup. I do not use Version Cue but I have hundreds of fonts (don't we all?). No font nor plug-ins were misssing. The warning may be there to protect Adobe but may sometime be required.
