I've checked the website, it says I still own all the creative cloud products, so my lisence isn't expired. It started yesterday and I assumed it was the computer's problem, but nothing will launch anymore. When I try to launch any app, it will go though the loading screen, and immediently shut down afterwards. I've changed no settings and don't know why this is happening. I tried uninstalling the cloud desktop app and reinstalling it, no fix. I tried to uninstall my main product (photoshop), but to reinstall it, it's just not in the desktop app anymore. I tried downloading Photoshop from the website, which redirected me to the desktop app, but still won't show or reinstall photoshop. Any fixes?!

Alright -

I uninstalled everything but got stuck when the instructions asked me to download the Log Tool Collector. It freezes and does nothing. Should I worry about this before proceeding?

log collector is for safety but isn't essential.  back up important files including your documents folder, then proceed with the cleaner.

I backed up the docs folder, and the cleaner tool states that files that are not synced have the possibility of being deleted. My IT admin doesn't allow for cloud sync, so should I perhaps talk about getting sync to avoid file deletion?
