Instructions for removing Adobe Creative Suite 1 (CS1) Standard and Premium

How to Manually Remove Adobe Creative Suite 1 (CS1) Standard and Premium

Some important points to note before proceeding:
  • Although the Adobe supplied "Uninstaller" applications may work they do not fully remove Adobe Creative Suite.
  • These instructions will help you manually remove all the Adobe Creative Suite software (including Acrobat 6, GoLive CS, Version Cue), system items and preferences.
  • If your Adobe software is "Activated" as opposed to a multi-user licence edition you should make sure you have deactivated the software before your being to remove it. This is usually done by opening an Adobe application and going to the Help menu > Activation/Activate/Deactivate/Transfer Activation.
  • Due to the sheer number of files and folders to be deleted we recommend you print this document first and tick off each line as you follow it.
  • The instructions below include emptying the Trash so make sure you check the Trash for anything you may not want to actually delete.
  • These instructions will remove items for a specific version of Creative Suite. However, some items are the same across different versions of Creative Suite so if you are removing an older version but have a newer version installed that you wish to keep specific items not to be removed will be noted in red.
  • If necessary, your Acrobat (Distiller) PDF settings / .jopoptions files should be saved/backed up before proceeding with these instructions. Their locations can be found in this article.
