    The download package you're describing is a compressed file. This can be done (and undone) with a variety of programs. After unzipping the package, you SHOULD have a folder. Look inside the folder for "setup.exe", and double click it, that should initiate the install.

    There are several "Zip Reader" programs, 7Zip, Win Zip, PKReader, et al. You can probably find e few on the Techspot "Downloads" page.

    Now the rest of this nonsense like "registry booster" or whatever, shouldn't be in the package if it did indeed come from Adobe.

    At one point I thought that Adobe suspended trials of PSCS releases unless you had a license to the previous version, but I could be mistaken.

    Anyway, installing "Nero 6" creates 120 bad registry entries alone. I used to run a registry cleaner to remove them, but it really wasn't necessary.

    Also, use the "edit" button to include more information, as opposed to serially making new posts.

    I don’t understand much of what you say, which could be my fault of course, and I can’t add much to what the captain said. Just comment on 2 points:

    1 Any specific problems with downloading and/or installing CS5 should properly be addressed to Adobe, unless your computer is defective, in which case you have a much more general and serious problem.

    2 As regards now registry boosters/cleaners, what they find as “errors”, even if they are in deed such, are usually harmless stuff of no consequence. Personally, I don’t recommend the use of these tools, as they can do more harm than good, e.g. eventually cause problems of the kind you seem to be having. If you must “clean” your registry, at least use a conservative and near safe tool like CCleaner. But don’t expect any noticeable improvement in performance.

    before my computer crashed..i could just download i have to download everyone via winzip or something unzipper....and sometimes i get the winzip file but there is no setup.exe...just files...i just want it to go back how it use to be..i figured out how to download things but its a hassle...and about the CS5 license thing... IDK if i should be saying this...but i use keygens and cracked versions to download things like that...

    Well actually, you shouldn't be saying that. You broke your computer trying to steal software, this doesn't sound like anything that is even remotely my problem, or anything that is permitted to be discussed at Techspot.

    Remember, the malware is free along with the "free" program, and you apparently don't have a full grasp of which is which.
