Resolved Question:

i have just purchased CS3 photoshop - When attempting to install i get a system check prompting me with the following: "Adobe Photoshop CS3 cannot be installed because it conflicts with:Adobe Photoshop CS3"

My system: mac power book 17"

History: I previously had installed a trial version of cs3 and since have deleted (unfortunately by drop and drag files into trash)

I have tried searching for all related files and can assure you there is not a cs3 file in sight.

Question: will a hard reboot f the OS fix this? or can i reinstall the trial cs3 disk and un install it the correct way?

Could you open your Mac hard drive and go to Applications/Utilities/Adobe Installers.

Let me know if you can find the add or remove photoshop application.

If not could you go to then download and runt he CS3 cleaner script.

After you have uninstalled could ou reboot then try to install again.

Let us know what happens.
