I am trying to take off all Adobe products for a clean install. I used the Adobe Cleaner as well as the Uninstall a program control panel.
The issue is that Adobe Illustrator CS5 at 3.5gigs still shows up in the list of programs in the Programs and Features list when using the uninstall a program control panel.
From Microsoft, I followed directions and opened Regedt32 to search the registry as it mentioned that sometimes the entry for an application removed might still show up in the Programs and Features window. I couldn't find any entry that related to Illustrator at all.
What I've noticed is that when one uninstalls a program via the control panel and it 'stays' in the list, there is no size shown. Try to uninstall again and it says something like, "this feature only works with installed applications." This is where the regedt will work.
The entry of Illustrator is showing 3.5gigs and when I try to uninstall, the cursor spins for a second and then nothing happens.
Is there a command-line way to find where a file is that is showing up in the Programs and Features window? Just using the search isn't revealing something.
Thanks for any insights
