I have seen this problem myself, where completely the wrong setup
program starts to run.
I'd start by cleaning out the TEMP folder, and see if that helps.
That might have worked, but I've already cleaned the temp files and other dust out both manually and with CCleaner. Registry is clean as well (that is to say... can the registry ever be really clean?). I don't even have ATI Catalyst on my machine, so I'm really not sure where the source file is coming from. I've re-downloaded the install program (which by the way worked well on my Inspiron laptop) and still get the same result.

I don't understand why cleaning the registry is at all important,
except to the people selling registry cleaners, but I digress.

I imagine you have the installer for ATM Catalyst, whatever that is,
and this is the problem. Now, finding it and getting rid of it could
be tricky, but it could be worth searching your hard disk for
setup.exe files. Look especially in places where they don't really
belong, like c:\ c:\winnt ...\system ...\system32 .
If in doubt see if one of them looks like the ATM Catalyst installer
if you run it.
That was the solution. I simply went to the ATI (ATI Catalyst is the display adapter/driver/control suite for Radeon Graphics Cards) /support directory and moved the previous installation source files to a temporary location (the .cab files, etc.) Once the Adobe installer couldn't find them, it ran its own installation. ANother mystery solved (although why.... ?, who knows.... it's Windows). Thanx
Could be that the other location had somehow ended up in your PATH.
