    Re: Error in uninstalling Adobe Photoshop in Windows 8


    Usually two reasons can generate message like that and they are as follows :

    1. When the program is in use and not closed for the uninstaller to uninstall which can not uninstall a program with a number of files open and active.

    Invoke Task Manager and shut all processes then try to uninstall.

    2. If due to some reason knowingly or otherwise files from the to be uninstalled program are manually deleted, the uninstaller cant find exact reference which was recorded during installation and due to that cant remove the program.

    Only third party uninstaller can uninstall under this scenerio.

    3. The Operating System program responsible for uninstalling can be damaged which can not uninstall any program.

    Repair Windows and try again.

    Hi Friend,

    There is because of photoshop registry is not removed fro system,
    also may be some file missing when try to Un-installing,

    First you can download Your Uninstaller from here
    >> And Install it
    >> Open your Un-installer
    >> Select Adobe Photoshop
    >> And click on un-install
    >> that remove photoshop with their registry

    If issue persist go to C drive, > Program files
    And look for Adobe photoshop
    Delete it
    Restart PC
    Now you can try to remove from control panel/your-uninstaller

    I hope you can understood.

    All the Best.

    Hello friend,

    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say.................................

    1.It may be used by your system at that time.

    2.So you try to close all applications running and also open Task Manager and End all process.

    3.If still you have the problem then you go to the Uninstall a Program.

    4.And from there you try to delete it if still you have the problem.

    5.Then this is some security problem so you remove all the files in it to the Recycle Bin some files will not get deleted leave them.

    Have a nice day................................
