The Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool will remove installation records for Adobe Creative Cloud or Adobe Creative Suite applications that may have become corrupted or may be causing problems with a new installation.

To remove an app using the Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool, you need to remove the app entry from the tool. Similarly, you need to remove CoreSync entry to resolve sync-related issues.

  • Back up all files stored in Adobe product directories, including custom plug-ins or profiles you have installed.
  • Uninstall Creative Cloud or Creative Suite applications by doing one of the following:
    • Windows 10, 8, 7, or Vista: Choose Start > Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features.
    • Windows XP: Choose Start > Control Panel and double-click Add or Remove Programs.
  • Select the application that you want to remove, and click Remove or Uninstall.
