Has you also try to uninstall Digital Edition over the uninstall file?
Hi Nanaky, can you elaborate. What do you mean by "uninstall Digital Edition over the uinstall file"?
Go to the folder of Digital Edition. In this should found a file for uninstall the software.
Hi Nanaky, I trashed all Digital Editions files on my computer but am still experiencing this issue (ADE graphic shows up in every single file viewer).
I decided to re-download the program so that I could search for the uninstall file, which you explain is located in the files for Adobe Digital Editions.
Here are the available files in the ADE contents.
Here are the expanded files. I could not locate any uninstall file.
I searched for an uninstall file in the ADE contents. These are the results, and the message I received when clicking on the results.
In conclusion, it appears that there is no uninstall file located in the ADE contents.
And under Finder > Programms > Utlitis > Adobe Installer?
Hi Nanaky, the program is installed on my computer, but there is no uninstaller included in Finder > Applications > Utilities > Adobe Installer.
Is there a location where I can download the Adobe Digital Editions 4.5 Uninstaller?
I have googled "download Adobe Digital Editions 4.5 Uninstaller" but there are no clear options to download this online.
:O that the right folder.... this is strange. Better you ask a staff person if have a idee for you. I have no more idea.
Thanks for your help Nanaky! I wish Adobe actually had customer service :/
Its a costfree product. So only help over forum.
For what it's worth, I am having exactly the same problem. If you find a solution, could you please post it here? Thanks.
have you found a solution??
i have the same issue.
Adobe can't provide my any uninstaller and keep telling to search the answer through forums ....
bump! Revisiting because I still have this problem!! I hate you Adobe Digital Editions!
OP reporting in, for anyone still suffering from this problem. After a year of living with this trash software haunting my computer, I finally made it to an Apple Genius Bar. Within five minutes the guy completely freed my computer of this junk.
A few things he did:
- ran malwareBytes Adwcleaner, deleted a couple files that come up after the scan and restarted the computer
- went into the Library and deleted ADE files
- completely cleared the cache
- emptied the trash (where the ADE installer was lurking, forever running and refusing to be closed or deleted)
Voila. Like magic, gone. So give this sequence a try, and if all else fails ask an apple genius. Good luck and godspeed.
Adobe Digital Editions is indeed a horrible app - a piece of junk, and deserving of every negative rating it's received (and there's quite a few of those!). I wound up here after searching for uninstall information on ADE, after first checking that there was no 'uninstaller' provided (a$$hulls!) . After reading comments here, I was prepared for the worst.
All that said, I've just completed the uninstall manually, and (fingers crossed) don 't seem to have any issues. Here's what I did for the benefit of others who wind up here:
1. Installed a copy of MalwareBytes
[altho' it didn't seem to be necessary in this case, I think it's good to have it]
2. Did a search in 'Finder' for "Adobe Digital Edition" (in quotes, inside Finder's search bar, just as shown)
[it found an .xml file in my "Documents" folder, which led me to a nest of ADE-related folders, and containing the single book that was the reason for installing ADE in the first place]
3. I made sure that ADE was not running by checking 'Activity Monitor'
4. In the Applications folder, I "Trashed" two ".app" files with ADE in their name
[one was a small file of only a few hundred bytes... no idea what its purpose was, but guaranteed not for the user's benefit]
5. Deleted/Trashed ADE-related folders
[one in my Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe Digital Edition, one in my "Documents" folder as mentioned above]
6. Emptied the Trash
Hope that helps
