How to completely Un-Install/Clean Remove/Clean Re-Install any Adobe Product (for Windows)

Posted on 3:40 PM by SAM KHAN

Its a very common issue nowadays for Developers/Animators/Designers of Un-Installing any Adobe product like Photoshop/Flash/ActionScript/DreamWeaver/AfterEffects (CS2/CS3/CS4)... OR Clean Re-Installation of any Adobe product...

So stop your searches and spend some time here for these EASY, OFFICIAL and JUST 5 STEPS of Clean Un-Installation & Clean Re-Installation of any Adobe product.

Commonly after Removing "Adobe Photoshop CS3/CS4" or "Adobe Flash CS3/CS4" from "Add/Remove Programs (Control Panel)" it says at the end of Un-Installation > "UnInstallation Done with some errors" or the Adobe product icon is not removed from the programes list.
And when you try to Re-Install it, at the end after completing the Installation it also says some time "Installation done with some errors".

REASON:
Its only and only because of the saved Product Key & Installed System Files in the system folder of windows, which cannot be removed/deleted via Control Panel.

SOLUTION:
HERE is the solution for this:
First of all you need Two Windows Applications:

  1. Windows CleanUp Utility.
  2. Adobe CS4 Clean Script.

Windows CleanUp Utility can be downloaded from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301.
Adobe CS4 Clean Script can be downloaded from http://www.adobe.com/support/contact/cs4clean.html.

Here are the steps you have to perform...
  1. Open "Windows CleanUp Utility" with Administrator privileges (Run as Administrator).
  2. Install it as directed.
  3. Now Extract the downloaded file "Adobe CS4 Clean Script" anywhere.
  4. Open "CS4InstallerDatabaseUtility.exe" with Administrator privileges (Run as Administrator).
  5. Now follow the instructions given in a DOS window. ("e" for English/"Y" for Yes...)
"This Script will also give a list of Adobe Products,which were previously Installed and some of the remaining components of these products are preventing from a Clean Un-Install and Clean Re-Install. THE MAIN REASON)"

Now after finishing with Clean Script, everything is done, each and every component of Adobe products is removed from the Installer directory/Registry of the windows.
Now you can Re-Install the Adobe software with a very clean and new Installation.
