    here's the dilemma. i'm currently installing adobe creative suite onto my computer. me being the idiot i am, i decided to leave my previous adobe software (photoshop, ill, etc) on my hard drive while cs installed.

    this process was supposed to take 30 mins.

    it's now been installing for close to 3 hours. it's been reloading the same page(something called language dependant files for indesign) for 2.5 of those 3 hours. am i fucked? i've tried quitting but it won't allow me. it says installation has to be complete before you can quit.

    should i just shut the computer down if this goes on for much longer?

    help

    Cancel installation, use ctrl+alt+del if you need to. Then go to start/programs/accessories/system restore and create a restore point. Restart your computer and uninstall the previous software, then restart again. Make another restore point and install.

    If you didn't pay for it download a different copy. If you did pay for it you wouldn't be asking 12oz this question, you'd be on the phone bitching at Adobe.
