In the previous days, we have seen a large number of users complaining of a common problem. They are saying that once they installed Adobe Application Manager on Windows, they are unable to remove it. Well, according to our experience there is not a single third party software that can’t be uninstalled. Only some stock programs of Windows can’t be uninstalled. The rest of all software are removable.
We have done some research and concluded a solution for our users. Here is the complaint which was registered by stjunkie on Adobe Support.
I mistakenly installed Adobe Application Manager last night because I thought it was needed to make it easier to update my existing Adobe Reader v10 and my other Adobe products (AIR, Flash, Photoshop Elements, and Premier Elements). How stupid of me to not do my research FIRST!!! Now I can not get rid of the damned thing.
