I used the trial Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended & after the 30 days it expired. When I try to remove this product using the Add/remove programs in the control panel of Windows XP the Adobe Photoshop CS5 is not in the list so I cannot completely remove it using windows S/W. However, the files (approx 6GB) were still on my desktop in a folder called Adobe which I had to move to my D drive as I had run out of disk space on the C drive. Can I just delete these files? In addition I also have the files:

C:\Programs\Common Files\Adobe\Adobe PCD

C:\Programs\Common Files\Adobe\Caps

I don’t know if there are any other files used by Photoshop on my system but I have an entry in my register for Adobe photoshop. Can I manually remove these files and remove the registry entry or is there a way to get windows to do this more thoroughly?

You can likely safely delete all of those.

Thanks for your reply would you suggest I also delete the registry entry for Photoshop under Adobe?
