    hi! I've been trying to install Adobe Photoshop CS3 in my Mac, I've installed one before which I got from someone, now I deleted and uninstalled it, now I'm installing a new one and at the start of the setup I always get...

    "Adobe Photoshop CS3 cannot be installed because it conflicts with:

    Adobe Photoshop CS3"

    ...from the System Check.
    I've deleted every Photoshop CS3 in my HD but this still keeps happening. Can anyone help? TIA!

    apps like Adobe's Creative Suites create support files on your library/application support folder.

    do a search with the keyword adobe or photoshop in it and delete the results. that may solve your problem.

    maybe you can use appzap or appcleaner to find and delete any Adobe files still lingering around your system.

    ^^ I think that will only work if she still has the Adobe apps, since it's been deleted already there's no app to uninstall

    Glad to help. Like dep28 said, consider using an appp uninstaller for removing apps in the future. It will also save some much needed HD space

    All Adobe apps have an uninstaller inside Application>Utilities>Adobe Uninstallers or something similar.
