    Loaded it once for a project that didn't pan out, and now I can't get rid of it. I no longer use Adobe (found a knockoff that doesn't require a monthly fee) and I do not need "the Cloud," but any attempt to uninstall it gets me "Couldn't uninstall Creative Cloud for desktop. You still have Creative Cloud applications installed on your computer that require it"...even when I first boot up in the morning.

    Annoying doesn't begin to describe it. :brood: Help appreciated.

    Never heard of a program that wont uninstall because other stuff will become incompatible.
    Either it uninstalls, and doesn't care, or it'll uninstall all the side bullshit along with itself.

    You're gonna have to hunt and kill those spinoff applications.

    Download and install the free program CC Cleaner. One of the many features it has is getting rid of crap like that easily.
