Windows 7: Manually deleted Adobe program and now all Adobe programs are affected

Manually deleted Adobe program and now all Adobe programs are affected

I downloaded Adobe Photoshop (Portable) and installed it. Then I wanted to change the location where it was saved. I tried to move it but it couldn’t be moved so I copied and pasted it into a new location. I know I should uninstall but since I just wanted 1 copy, I deleted one.


After that, most of the other Adobe programs were affected. When I opened some, they would say that some files are missing or my license has expired. Some started asking for serial number or to register.


When I opened Adobe Photoshop Elements 7.0 it said Photoshop Elements Help was missing and there were missing icons on the right side.


So I uninstalled and reinstalled the programs. I downloaded some but they can’t be installed. It always says some files are missing.


What is the cause of the problem?
How can I fix this?

Try downloading the entire app again and then reinstall!

I've tried reinstalling but it's still faulty.
Tried System Restore more than once but it didn't work.

The reason I said download again before you try to reinstall is that your original download may be corrupt!

Light,

Uninstall all adobe programs which are not working correctly.

Reboot your computer.

Download and install only one of the programs you uninstalled.

Does that one program work?

If yes, then pick another adobe program, download and install, test

You get the idea.

Adobe Photoshop >>>(Portable)<<<
I don't believe that is a official Adobe release, if you catch my drift.

I don't see a 'portable' version on the official site ... but I do on P2P sites, using Google.
