Hello. I recently found out that Adobe is a major bloatware program and I do have it all. I tried uninstalling it but now I think I may have a problem. I used "Revo Uninstaller" and it 'claimed' to have removed Adobe but, when I did a search for Adobe I found dozens and dozens of Adobe programs and worse yet other programs that are associated with Adobe. Is there any way I can completely uninstall Adobe without interfering/affecting these other programs?
I am attaching a screenshot of the files that came up AFTER I allegedly uninstalled Adobe. This is only about 2/3 of the whole list. As you can see the files associated with Adobe include Nero, Canon Camera program and a video program called VLC Media Player. If I uninstall/delete all these Adobe programs will doing so affect those programs?

Thanks in advance for your attention.

Hi -
Just a basic list of common Adobe products / Programs - Products
Creative Cloud
Creative Suite
Digital Marketing Suite
Digital Publishing Suite
ElementsMobile apps
Touch Apps
Adobe Reader
Adobe Flash Player
Adobe AIR
Adobe Shockwave Player
Many more, but I just copied the first ones listed - Do not uninstall all Adobe programs, or you may find thar you will reinstall them -
EDIT - I did not include Nero CD copy program that uses Adobe programs -
Adobe works with many other programs, and makes other programs work -
