I have just got a new (2nd hand) computer with Windows 10 in it, in preparation for the demise of Windows 7.**** Can't say that I am very impressed with it, although I may get used to it eventually.** I managed to get Apache Open Office and even Word 2000 into it OK.** But when it came to Adobe Photoshop, it got so far and said "Uninstall Shield is preventing installation, turn it off and try again!"**** So - what on earth is the "Uninstall shield!" what is it for, and how can I turn it off?** I have searched all over Google, and found plenty of similar complaints, but no solutions!*** Has anyone here got any idea?

That is one of the first things I found on Google. All perfectly clear, of course. I opened the Task Manager, and looked through the Processes, and no sign of IsUninst.exe. Found a number of other solutions on Google, also very clear, and all bringing no results -:(

Bobclay might be able to help you. Don't know if he is still on here. He is on the other site S/H. He knows plenty about computers.

When I first saw your post, Bob, I thought your version was not compatible to W10. I dug out my old photoshop v6 disc, which app, I have not used in years. I fired it into my W10 laptop, not expecting it to install, but it installed no bother. So I presume some glitch is stopping yours from installing. I hope someone can come up with an answer. Best of luck.

P.S. Have you tried installing from windows explorer using setup.exe?

Is this any help?

"If you no longer use InstallShield® unInstaller, you can permanently remove this software and thus isuninst.exe from your PC. To do this, press the Windows key + R at the same time and then type 'appwiz.cpl'. Then find InstallShield® unInstaller in the list of installed programs and uninstall this application."
No guarantees mind

It probably is best to uninstall it by "brute force," but I haven't a clue how to do that either!:sweat:
Not that it matters any more, as I have given up on it, and put the old Windows 7 PC back in service.
The new (2nd hand) Windows 10 PC is now banished to another room, and is just being used as a storage hulk for all my old files from USB sticks or CD disks. I have fed over 200gb into it so far. I have no problem with Windows 10 when used like this, just found it not very good online, and with old programmes. I will shortly be getting a cheap 2nd hand laptop with Windows 10 in it when support for Windows 7 stops, and that will just be used for online banking or purchases. They are cheap enough - about £100 -

I must confess, I didn't count the E,s. With my bum to the wind(no inside toilet), I didn't really care, as long as I didn't p1ss into it.

Good Lord, I never realised that the EEC had made a directive about how not to p1ss into the wind.
They think everything don't they. I expect the French just carry on as they were.
