Uninstalling Adobe

How on earth do you uninstall Adobe? I've tried everything...Revo Uninstaller...Add or remove programs...and a plethora of ununstallers, including the Adobe uninstaller itself. It resolutely refuses to move!!

Have you tried to remove it in safe mode

Hello mfletch...is that a better option?

  mfletch 19:14 29 Jul 2008

Yes as its processors will not be running

  thumbscrew 19:30 29 Jul 2008

So, it's what...F8...safe mode and, there's an uninstall option there?

Did you run Revo fully ...

The correct procedure when using Revo (which IMHO is excellent) ...

Start the un-install in much the same way as the normal Add/Remove in Windows.

Revo then un-installs using the built-in un-installer of the program being un-installed.

One is then given the Option to re-start the computer (as is normal in many un-installers), but at this point do NOT re-start your computer.

You will next be given the option to Choose All and to Delete, DO SO!

Revo will then continue until you get the option to click on Finish - do so, and then Restart your computer.

No - you just un-install as you normally would, except that you do so in Safe mode!

Revo can also be run in Safe mode.

Thats a good idea use revo to uninstall adobe in safe mode

Reboot into SAFE MODE

1/Click Start and then click Turn Off Computer.
2/In the Turn Off Windows dialog box, click Restart, and then click OK.
3/As your computer restarts but before Windows launches, press F8 repeatedly.
4/Use the arrow keys to highlight Safe Mode, and then press ENTER.
5/If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access using the arrow keys, and then press ENTER.
Note: If Windows launches before you can choose a safe mode, restart your computer and try again
PS/ Sometimes it maybe the F5 key
