Want to remove registry entries for Adobe Creative Suite

Hi all and anyone,

I recently installed a crap copy of Adobe CS5 that I was told was good, and would like to install a new one but have been told that I might want to delete any traces of the old copy before proceeding, this includes deleting any entries that have been made in the registry.
Can anyone help me with this? Please let me know if you need more info.

Thanks heaps,
noobdog

noobdog,
Welcome to SevenForums.

Others will scream at me for suggesting this, but I will recommend a program which I use regularly. I do not know if the program will cleanout the traces you want removed, but click on the link for Auslogics in my signature.

Have you tried this cleaner tool from Adobe..
Adobe - Adobe Creative Suite Cleaner Tool

It's easy to manually clean the obvious registry enties, but can be difficult and risky to start deleting class regsitry entries. You will often end up with orphaned entries.

If you haven't uninstalled it yet, use Revo Uninstaller in Advanced Mode. Set a Restore point first.
Revo Uninstaller - How toTo Completely Uninstall Programs

CCleaner Registry tab will remove empty registry shells, but if you want to aggressively remove keys that may be left over after an uninstall you can reinstall the program for the purpose of uninstalling it with Revo.
