Hi

this is the downloader for Photoshop. Try disabling the downloader or kill the process and try again uninstalling it. See the kb below for more info.

Hi zjessez

next step would be to remove Adobe Photoshop Album Starter Edition 3.0 manually I guess but that mayb require some registry hack'n'slash.

Backup your registry and make sure you have a system restore point before proceeding.

Locate HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\ and delete the entry for Adobe Photoshop Album SE, this will stop it from autostarting. Restart your PC and try uninstalling.

If this does not yield success, the next step is to find HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Photoshop Album\3.0\ and delete the key Photoshop Album and its sub keys.

Reboot and try uninstalling.

If this does not work you might as well delete all entries for Photoalbum from the registry by manually searching for Photoshop and deleting the keys associated. BUT, as I don't know what else is installed on your PC it is advisable to only delete what is 100% identifiable as such and leave other items untouched.

To search registry press CTRL+F and hit F3 for subsequent results.

Make sure you have no USB imaging devices such as cameras, card readers or phones connected to your PC whilst unisntalling asalso interfere with uninstallation.

Well deleting the keys and tying to uninstall doesn't work for me.  Sure mucking around the registry and deleting every key associated with this software is a possibility but I rather not chance creating other issues.  Since this is a work computer and this was part of the work image..i can only assume it has to do with that.  I ended up going into the preferences and making it NOT the default viewer.. still stinks that I can't uninstall it but atleast it won't case a problem now on.

Also if there is a problem uninstalling this software and you do attempt to mess with the registry, deleting each key manually.  It might be worth while getting a registry cleaner ...that is free ..if there are any.

Hi zjessez

I am a little confused about your comment and grade.

I have given you a solution to your problem and you have decided not to pursue this because of concerns re system issues. This is perfectly fine. In the end that is why it is imperative that you backup your registry before attempting your changes, even then regedit is not for the faint hearted and can get cumbersome.

What baffles me is that you contemplate using a free reg cleaner that will indiscriminately clean out your registry of all it deems obsolete.

I am concerned that anyone reading your comment may think that this is the way to go. It is NOT and free reg cleaners have a track record of leading to instable systems more often than not so it would be irresponsible form me to recommend one.

I also do not understand the C grade, you have posted your reluctance to follow the advice, this does not mean that the advice was bad. If you want to grade using a C at least wait more than 3 minutes from your last post to give me a chance to respond.

Respectfully

The grade is C because:
 1.)  The level of complexity required to mess with the registry.
 2.)  No explanation of what this error means and why it occurs.
 3.)  Appears to be no simple solution.

C is average..and I don't see anything wrong with average.
