    Hey,

    I used my macbook's harddrive in target disk mode from another computer, opened up cs3, from that other computer, and since then the cs 3 installation is saying that it has expired...

    ... reactivating gives me an error message, blah blah blah.... i want to completely remove cs3 from my computer and reinstall from scratch... i use the adobe uninstaller, reinstall, and i get the same error message... "It has expired"....

    -is there some sort of time stamp that must be removed manually?

    how do i completely remove this stuff and start completely from scratch?


    thanks so much, from this typical student,


    r.

    The Adobe deinstall script did not work for me. I was playing around with some trial versions which expired meanwhile. I could never completely remove the installations (even I used the hidden option 4 in the script).
    I would be very thankful if somebody really could advise how to erase the traces of previous trial versions.
    Thanks!

    I guess you could very possibly try AppCleaner Although I dunno what it would achieve.

    You could try a manual search through the Preferences/Application Support folders with the terminal command allowing you to view hidden files.
    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
    To turn it off, just enter this in Terminal:
    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE

    you can also go in your Users / Library /Application Support / Adobe ......and

    look for any CS3 files, that you should delete.
