Gosh, this issue has become such a headache I hope someone can help. I recently downloaded Adobe Photoshop CS3 from a torrent site and am now unable to remove it. During a System Restore a may have accidentally deleted some of the files along with the setup. When I try uninstalling it in Control Panel nothing happens. I have re-downloaded the torrent so that I can try to reinstall but when doing so the following message pops up:

Setup Already Running
You can only install one Adobe product at a time. Please complete the other installation before attempting to install Adobe Photoshop CS3.

There arenít any other installations running. I really want to get rid of this for good. Any suggestions?? What should I do? Thanks in advance.

Download the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility:
Check the box by anything referring to it and run the tool
If you cannot afford to purchase it legally, look in our freeware applications thread for alternatives

Has this issue been resolved? garmanma's post should be a good solution. If not, int he registry you are able to find uninstall strings. If you put the string into command prompt, this should remove all components of the prgram for you.
