    Alright, I hope this is the right place for this.

    So long story short I need to delete photoshop COMPLETELY.I OWN 2 different legitimate version ( CS 3 and 5 ) but Ive installed a free Photoshop CC a little while ago ( to see what the fuss was all about )

    Now, problem is, after the 30 days , I ddint think it was worth spending money on it so I've tried to re-install 2 different versions : CS3 CS5 BOTH WITH SERIAL NUMBERS but somehow there's still a file hidden somewhere and I can only get a 30 day trial EVEN with the proper serial #.

    Im not asking how to hack PS CC so I can re-install a free trial, I hate that thing so bad right now , I couldnt care less about it.All I want to get rid of it FOR GOOD so I can use my good ol trusty CS3.

    Ive tried everything to delete this freaking thing, uninstall program and even did this :

    Have you been to the Adobe website? They used to have some sort of online widget to authorize/deauthorize particular copies of PS on particular computers. It's been a few years since I last used it, so I don't know if Adobe still has the utility, or where they might keep it if they do.

    i believe you can run both side by side (CC and CS5). So I couldn't guess what the prob would be. What about all the adobe installers for CC? Have you deleted those?

    You can get strait downloads for PP without the adobe installers if that helps.

    They do have the most convoluted install an delete process ever. So much so they have full tutorials on the process. I did what you did. Tried CC version and then installed cs6. I was successful without a hikup. I would focus on deleting all things adobe off my mac and then starting anew
