Hi Dancing,
Did you remove the PS folders in Program & programs(x86).
You will also have to remove the APPDATA folders as well, to see these you need to reset folder view to show hidden.

I suspect that you will need them to be different drives to work properly as everytime you update, the older PS will be overwritten.
