    Hey guys first post, pretty trivial to most of you I imagine but I'm rather new to macs.

    I installed the beta version of photoshop CS3 and I never got the chance to try it before the trial ran out. I tried re installing it so I can have a go but its clearly not that stupid. I take it there must be some kind of registry file I would have to delete to completely uninstall the software and reset everything.

    Help would be awesome and I look forward to one day contributing to the community.

    Thanks

    Hi Lee and welcome ;)

    What happens when you try to reinstall Photoshop? There is no registry in OSX but there may be a stray file left over from your previous install. Try doing a search for words like Adobe, Photoshop, CS3 etc. Trash the resulting files (assuming you've no other Adobe apps) and start again.

    Good luck.

    Companies make those license timer files difficult to find for a reason!

    Yeah i figured that, its probably hidden or coded in away that deleting it doesn't reset it.
