5)Then click on Apply Now button.
Click on the Finder and look for the options listed next to Apple Icon located at the top left corner of the Desktop screen and click on "Go" menu button and select "Utilities" option.

you may have such a mess now that you'll need to reformat. but short of that first try applying each step below that you are able to apply which, at least, includes everything from using the cleaner on down the list:
uninstall every cc app including preferences, https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/uninstall-remove-app.html
then uninstall the cc desktop app, again using the correct uninstaller, https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/uninstall-creative-cloud-desktop-app.html#sa_src=web-mes...
clean your computer of cc files per http://www.adobe.com/support/contact/cscleanertool.html
restart your computer (don't skip this)
reinstall the cc desktop app, https://creativecloud.adobe.com/apps/all/desktop?action=install&source=apps&productId=creative-cloud
if you're unable to download the cc desktop app at this stage, use the link at the bottom of the page at https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/kb/creative-cloud-desktop-app-download.html
use the desktop app to install your cc programs/trials
Thank you for the reply. However I have mistakely unistalled all the adobe creative cloud apps from my computer, (as from the previous message) I am still unable to re install creative cloud. I have the creative cloud installer (small silver icon) on my desk top but it doesnt open.
again, did you try applicable steps from the cleaner on down?
if so, and that failed, reformat, reinstall your os, reinstall the cc desktop app and use it to install your cc programs.
Adobe creative cloud cleaner tool
(there is no session to delete)
The following installations were found on your system
Fix Host File
Adobe Id credentials
Please note i am not very tec minded...
Please note i still can not launch creative cloud installer
Many thanks my computer is now reinstalling
do you know what was the problem, or what was the solution?
