IE Developer Toolbar Beta 3 install hangs

I haven’t been able to successfully install beta 3 of the Internet Explorer developer toolbar on my work PC. At about 98% complete, the setup program reports “Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar is being installed. Please wait…” The msiexec.exe process always hangs and maxes out my CPU at this point.

I haven’t been able to figure out what’s causing this. Has anyone else experienced this problem and figured out a resolution? Any help would be appreciated! Here is my system info:

Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600 Service Pack 2 Build 2600
Internet Explorer 6.0.2900.2180

I would revert back to beta 2 (which worked perfectly fine for me) if I could find the install file… I can’t find anywhere to download beta 2—it seems to have been replaced with beta 3.

P.S. Don’t bother suggesting that I use Firefox instead with its associated web developer toolbar—I already use it extensively for most of my development. But I do use the IE web developer toolbar when troubleshooting IE specific issues.
