Open Photoshop and go to the main menu Help>Deactivate. Then you can uninstall it using you OS's way to uninstall any program.
I clicked on help and Deactivate is not found on the pull down menu. Where else can I look for the Deactivate button?
There is nowhere else. Help > Deactivate is the only place.
Are you using a regular retail version of Photoshop CS6?
Thanks for the reply. I'm using a retail version of photoshop 7.0.1. When
I open the program and click on Help, Deactivate is not listed on the pull

I'm using a retail version of photoshop 7.0.1.
There was no activation for Photoshop 7.x so there'll be no deactivation option in the Help menu.
Activation was introduced in Photoshop CS (from memory), the version after 7.0.1 (that's CS1, the original Creative Suite version).
This thread refers to CS6 which is why deactivating is required.
Thanks again for the information. I will go an look in the CS1 forums for
any information on how to delete photoshop. The reason I'm trying to
delete it is because the program will start up on it's own just by touching
my keyboard. Thanks.

There is no such forum. This is the Photoshop forum for all versions of Photoshop.
In your case, just uninstall the software using your operating system tools. Which operating system are you using?

Sounds odd. Not sure uninstalling and reinstalling will fix that but there's no harm in trying.
I'm using Vista. When I go to the uninstall program screen and click on
uninstall photoshop, I get this message: "You do not have sufficient
access to uninstall Adobe Photoshop 7.0.1. Please contact your system
administrator. Any suggestions??

Are you in a corporate environment or is this your personal PC at home?
Are you logged into Windows as an administrator?
I have the same question. I found this thread and went to Deactivate CS6. the system came back telling me it was going to deactivate Photoshop CS6, CC, Lightroom and all my Adobe applications. I stopped.
Id really like to take CS6 of the computer and free up all the space it uses up. How do I go about it so all the older CS6 has been removed?
