I have After Effects 2017 and I was having trouble with it because it wouldn't connect to the dynamic link in order for me to export me comp to AME. While I was trying to fix this, I somehow made it so my After effects wouldn't launch any more. On the spash screen it gets to the "Cleaning up" section then it starts not responding. I have tried to reinstall it many times to see if I can completely reset my adobe files so it would install a fresh version. Is there anyway I can easily do this to reset my AE?
Uninstall everything Adobe, run Adobe's CC Cleaner tool, go in and manually make sure everything Adobe is removed.
