I'm trying to uninstall Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0 because I was unable to access any online help (the menu item was grayed out). Since I recently switched computers and transferred my Photoshop via Ethernet cable, I decided to just reinstall.

My first attempt at uninstalling was simply to drag the Photoshop files from the Applications folder into the trash. Now it won't let me empty the trash. I went ahead and re-installed the program and restarted my computer and now it won't open.

Thanks!

I'm not familiar with the Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0 installation process, but does the installer have the feature of uninstalling itself instead you having to uninstall the app.

You can also try a 'secure empty trash.'

Photoshop elements will place a number of files in your library folder just the same as the full photoshop version does. Best thing to do is a search with the words adobe and photoshop and trash all the files that come up (make sure they are the right ones).

The Photoshop Elements 2.0 install CD does not come with uninstall.
I have tried to reboot and then empty the trash. I also went into security privileges and unlocked the application. Didn't work.

Open terminal,
cd .Trash (assuming you're in your home folder)
sudo rm -fr * (make sure there's nothing there you want to keep!)

Tell us what happens. Should delete everything in the trash.
