How do I remove Adobe AIR, and is that what has scrambled my legal serial number in my licensed copy of Photoshop?
Shortly after I installed a trial version of Adobe Premier Elements video editor software, my Photoshop CS1 (which has worked fine for 3.5 years on my Windows vista machine) requested that I re-activate my software. After I did, the serial number in the PS splash screen resembles: %&?]+0@. And whenever I try to launch PS, after the splash screen, I get the error: "Invalid personalization information", and then PS just quits.
I uninstalled the Premier trial software and yet the Adobe AIR that was installed with it remains. Windows Programs and Features can not remove it- even when I booted in safe mode.
Adobe says "AIR is free so we don't support it".
Any suggestions to help me get the serial number for my licensed copy of CS1 working again? Thank you.
