Cannot get CS5 to re-install

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

Hi gurus. I cannot for the life of me get my copy of Photoshop CS5 to re-install on my computer.
Worked fine on my old and now dead pc (running Vista).
On the new windows 7 (home premium edition) it ran fine for 6 mths or so and then started having issues. First the photomerge failed to startup and then a few months later the whole software failed to start
Un-installed CS5 and tried to re-install. Nope, locks the PC up at the Adobe Help install stage.
Jumped on Adobe forums and looked around. Found advice to deregister install on old machine. Coaxed the old PC into action and successfully deregistered that working version of CS5.
Tried to install again on the new PC. Again failed at the Adobe Help stage.
Have tried un-installing all adobe programs that are required (such as air, download assistant, help manager, install manager, after effects CS6(trial version)) left only digital editions, flash player 11 activeX and Reader XI. Failed to install CS5 at the same point.
Tried deleting all the CS5 folders out of the C drive under program and programx86 folders. Still fails.
Tried at one point to use the adobe on line chat.....after initial contact I was told to wait as I ended up in the wrong section and would be transfered ..............eventual logged off an hour later after no further contact from Adobe help was forthcoming.
Arrgh frustrating as all getout.....
Any one with ideas on how to get the install to work? It would be muchly appreciated.

Reporting back and
No didn't work
and
No didn't work.
The clean up script program made no difference at all.
Safe mode did however make a difference as I was able to get past the Adobe Help install only to find the program install came back with an error and a log.
exit code 6
