Windows 7: Can't uninstall Photoshop CS5 on Win 7

Can't uninstall Photoshop CS5 on Win 7

I go to Programs, Uninstall, select photoshop cs5, it gives me a photoshop uninstall screen,
I click ok, then gives a message "there has been an error, can't uninstall".

I searched for hours looking for an answer but it seems there is only one way.

So I decided I want to delete the Photoshop cs5 directory off the C:/ drive then run CC Cleaner after.

Is it safe to do this?
Will it mess up the operation system? thanks

thanks guys, . .
I ran the Adobe Clean app, . . , went back to Add/Remove Programs, selected Adobe CS5, uninstall,
it said there was a problem or something, and asked if I wanted to remove it from the list, said Yes, and it was removed.

But, I go into : C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5.1
and still see all the files there.

Can I just delete this folder now?

If it was my computer I would just remove them.
Windows 7 doesn't need any CS-5 files to work properly.

A little free program I use to hunt things down and remove them is Everthing Search.

Everything Search Engine

Like all removal tools you must use it correctly and at your own risk.
You will probably find little bits and pieces of CS-5 hiding.
