Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Changed my default installation point once, now its broken

So a while back I changed my default install path in regedit to a different location, but now im trying to install Adobe products and its messing up. Now when I went back into regedit to change the default path back, it shows that it's back to the default path already, but things are still installing in the paths I changed it to a while back. Thanks in advance for any help
