Adobe recommends that you use the Adobe Creative Suite uninstaller in the Add Or Remove Programs utility in Windows to remove Adobe Creative Suite from the computer. Occasionally, however, damaged files or a partial installation can prevent the Adobe Creative Suite uninstaller from working correctly. They can also cause the uninstaller to leave files or empty application folders on the system after the removal is performed. You sometimes also notice Adobe Creative Suite missing from the Add Or Remove Programs list. Or, you could find that the installer only displays the Repair and Remove options when you try to install Adobe Creative Suite.
Manually removing Adobe Creative Suite ensures that all files and folders are removed. These instructions are for removing Adobe Creative Suite Premium 2.x. If you have Adobe Creative Suite Standard 2.0, then you don't have all of the applications and components listed below. If you have previous versions of Adobe applications installed, then be sure to remove only the files below that relate to Adobe Creative Suite 2.x. These steps also remove any extra content (for example, Goodies or Functional Content) that you installed with Adobe Creative Suite 2.x. If you reinstall Adobe Creative Suite 2.x, it's necessary to reinstall its extra content as well.
For help removing an individual program from within Adobe Creative Suite, see the manual removal document for that application.
Note: It's possible that your system doesn't contain all of the files and folders listed in this document. If you do not find a listed file or folder on your system, proceed to the next file or folder on the list.
